Dylan Farrow has come forward with her story about being victimized by Woody Allen and what it did to her to see him walk away. Nicholas Kristof, apparently a friend, allowed her to post her letter in his NYT blog.

Perhaps to pacify the lawyers, he says this: "Allen�s defenders correctly note that he denies the allegations, has never been convicted and should be presumed innocent."

Correctly? What rich or powerful man in those days was convicted of molesting a child? Not being charged or convicted is proof of, well, nothing really. A jury that hasn't yet heard his case can presume that he's innocent. The rest of us are, I think, allowed to use our common sense and our experience of human nature.

There were only two people there and they each tell a different story. So it's down to instinct and logic who you believe.

To me, it's clearcut. If some dirty old creeper starts cheating on his girlfriend with that girlfriend's teen-aged daughter, even if it's somehow legal, I don't think that guy has any credibility as a decent human being. I couldn't give a crap about Mia Farrow as an actress and I used to love the old 1960s era Woody Allen films but once I heard about his carrying-on with Soon-yi, I was done. I had no interest in watching his films or seeing his ugly face ever again. There are billions of people in the world. Half of them are women. A decent person doesn't decide to mess around with his long-term girlfriend's much younger daughter. It's just cruel. It's one thing to break up with a woman, and it's quite another to destroy her entire family by cheating on her with her own daughter.

So, yah, I don't believe Woody, a proven liar and a cheat, and I've got no use for him frankly. I don't blame Dylan for asking why people work with him. I wonder the same thing. Cate Blanchett doesn't have enough money?
