Roman Polanski – Swiss-U.S. Relations

September 27, 2009

I make no comment here on Roman Polanski’s crime, punishment, or long evasion of the U.S. judicial system.

I only wanted to note that the Swiss must be madder than ever at us (the U.S.) right now.  Not only have we wrought havoc on their bank secrecy laws, but now we are invading their Oscar (should I say “Oskar”) ceremony.

I’m guessing that it might be a good time to stock up on chocolate;  it may be very hard to get the good stuff soon.

(PS – I have to say I really don’t know what the Swiss attitude is to all this yet.  It really is a guess.  I also don’t mean to sound glib about Polanski’s original crime.)
