"They arrested him in Switzerland," Dawn said. "I just heard it on the news."
Sickness, panic. Need my family. Need my mother. Need a Xanax.
Roman Polanski's arrest was, in a sense, my arrest. Because I am that 13-year-old girl. It's all such ancient history, you might say. After all, it's 2013: he's 80, I'm 50. I have a great husband, great kids, a great life. But just about everyone who lived through or read about this sordid chapter in Hollywood history had an opinion about the renowned director and the girl he was accused of drugging, raping, and sodomising - me.
