Polanski - Should The Charges Be Dropped?

There's a lot of controversy about whether Roman Polanski should have
the charges dropped for the 30 year old child rape case. It's
important that men who have molested children have a path to
redemption, but the "he's a brilliant artist" does not even address
how he currently views what he did and how he did it. Here's a great
article on the matter:

Photoshop Health Warning

France is considering requiring all retouched photos to bear a Warning Label. What do you think? Here is a link to a story.

I like the idea. I think women suffer from efforts to compete with these unrealistic images. I think men suffer from the expectation that the women in their lives should be as flawless as a retouched photo. These fantasy images can only distance ourselves from the real beauty and joy in living life rather than looking at it.

Here are some other valuable links regarding retouching photos:
