Cokie's Justice and Pomposity
“Roman Polanski is a criminal. You know, he drugged and raped and sodomized a child. And then was a fugitive from justice. As far as I’m concerned, just take him out back and shoot him.” - Cokie Roberts God loves you Miss Cokie! What ever happened to our Puritan forefather's favorite method of execution, drawing and quartering*? Roman Polanski, sleazball child rapist. What of noblesse oblige, perhaps not quite so noble, Roman? * Then Sentence was passed, as followeth, viz. That they should return to the place from whence they came, from thence be drawn to the Common place of Execution upon Hurdles, and there to be Hanged by the Necks, then cut down alive, their Privy-Members cut off, and Bowels taken out to be burned before their Faces, their Heads to be severed from their Bodies, and their Bodies divided into four parts, to be disposed of as the King should think fit.
