    There are good reasons that the Hollywood casting couch has been a well known thing since the 1920's.

    Weinstein's use of the walker is apparently an obvious ruse because his apparent explanation is that he had some sort of back procedure, but if that were truly the case he'd be walking STRAIGHTER not stooped. Someone should have told him before he went out in public; someone's getting fired.

    That's not necessarily so. There are plenty of back surgeries that don't work, or help, or that even end up worsening problems.

    That said, looking at him, or Bill Cosby, on their way to and from courts lately has only reminded me of each of them. Going to jail for their actions seemed to turn each of them into feeble-looking, fragile old men. Not that they were young before they went in, of course, but maybe prison really does do something to you.

    Weinstein hasn't gone to jail.

    My mistake. So, even if just the prospect of it, the thought still stands. I can't get over how alike those two seem to look and be acting, all of a sudden.

    It has nothing to do with appearances for a jury, nothing at all.

    The women they have brought forth, jesus, the prosecution should have just focused on one woman who had been assaulted and who didn't carry on a relationship with him. I'm worried the jury is gonna conflate these stories and he's gonna walk.

    What's your point? It's just my observation/opinion, and a thought I've had each time I've seen either one of those guys. And I doubt I'm the only one.

    He got off on the most serious charges, but he’ll get hammered on the two convictions.
