    "Mini" Doctrine: A Case of Morals

    October 7, 2009

    This started out as a brief mini-video, and somehow turned into an endless obsessive rant about the minutiae of the Polanski case. This video has no entertainment value, unless you enjoy hearing "let's be clear" over and over.

    Related links:
