The "music" in this case, of course, being the parade that Hollywood will throw him when he gets back. Because in Hollywood, drugging and having anal sex with 13-year-olds is actually a prestige-builder. I'm beginning to wonder if the arrest wasn't a staged thing -- an opportunity to get Polanski back in the US, so whatever deal has been worked out in secret (and, yes, they've been trying to work one out for a couple of years now) can be put into play.
This is why I left The Business. It was things like this -- a million little soul-killers that eat away at a human heart -- that made me realize that when you lie down with dogs, you absolutely get up with fleas.
That's an insulting metaphor, I realize. I'll apologize personally to the dogs -- and the fleas -- later.
