Hollywood 13-Year-Olds Aren't Really 13 -- Huh?

Washington Post TV critic Tom Shales has come up with a creative new defense of Roman Polanski: Hollywood thirteen-year-olds aren't really thirteen.

Tom Shales: Hello, Dunn Loring, I didn't want to sign off without trying to answer your question. I didn't realize I had written a column defending Roman Polanski and minimized his crime - are you sure it was me? I mean, I? There is, apparently, more to this crime than it would seem, and it may sound like a hollow defense, but in Hollywood I am not sure a 13-year-old is really a 13-year-old.
