No matter what he says he is going to sound guilty.  That's the beauty of the child molestation charge.  That said, even if he is innocent of child molesting, Allen himself is largely to blame for shitting in his own nest the way he did.  It's hard to muster up much sympathy for him.

As I said in earlier threads, I do admire the man's work.  I think he has a perceptive, brilliant mind for writing.  But like so many geniuses I have known, he apparently has very little in the common sense department.

Also, I find his suggestion that there has never been an inkling of his being interested in pedophilia prior to age 56 a bit hollow, given that his masterpiece "Manhattan" was based on that very topic.

I think we are all much too fascinated with this case, to tell you the truth.  But American pop culture is obsessed with this sort of thing and it's hard not to look.

Unfortunately Woody Allen is one of two people who really know what happened, and he is going to stick to his story like glue.
