That’s always the case. It seems a potential scandal is roiling the UK right now, with the revelation that Prince Andrew may have been led into unseemly behavior. Or, rather than “led”, ran eagerly into it. Tsk.
Buckingham Palace has resisted growing pressure to explain Prince Andrew’s association with convicted child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, whom the royal is believed to have met on numerous occasions, including on his private jet, yacht and in stays at his New York and Florida mansions.
Oh, right. Jeffrey Epstein. That guy has been on the radar for years — I recall being assured that no, this guy was just a little wild, but he’d never ever do anything illegal or sleazy. And now he’s caught owning a “sex slave” who he loans out to well-connected pals, and it’s coming out about how he suppressed news stories that mentioned his unsavory appetites.
You know, it would be kind of nice if Lawrence Krauss came out and did the right thing, and mentioned that he was wrong about Epstein, way back when.
