Galliano v. Strauss-Kahn

French loud-talker Bernard-Henri Levy has stopped mouthing off about his friend Dominique Strauss-Kahn and how simply terrible the American system of arresting people suspected of violent crimes is, at least in part because he’s away, acting as an unofficial envoy to Libya. (Poorly.) He took a boat from Malta! This prevents him from weighing in on the John Galliano case, which is soon to go before a French judge (in their bizarre system of justice!) on charges of being a racist and hating Jews. (That charge carries jail time.) Galliano’s defense is to blame prescription meds and alcohol for his language. (You know who else blamed pills and booze? That’s right! Hitl — hmmm, Mel Gibson? Maybe also Dominique Strauss-Kahn?) Anyway: where is the BHL essay bemoaning the rush to judgment on Galliano? Mon Dieu, etc.
