and......THE END.......?

 I'm not one for loose ends, so I have to try to tie at least one up!
My problem with the limpid story of the above person's adventures in the USA was not so much concerned with the actual sordid or not sordid details, but in reality with the reaction of both the Press, and a Justice System which ignored and still seems to ignore the meaning of the word justice. Logically both should be up in front of judges for their respective rôles in the sad story of the downfall of an individual. THAT would be justice, so it won't happen.
The only people who really should have anything to say on the subject should logically be the two individuals concerned, truthfully - so that won't happen either, and possibly the French justice in the question of the complaint registered by a French female authoress who "just happened" to have a new publication arriving on the market right at that very moment - again truthfully - so again - that won't happen either!
There is one other section of the population who will probably have the final word in the history, the French voting public, and they will have one question to answer:
YES or NO.......
In their opinion......
And the final decision........

It is truly surprising, listening to opinions, in French, on French radio, of many ordinary female listeners views. Many of them have an inherent, probably very French point of view that the main actor may well be a seductor, but he isn't an agressor! They continually state that for them, it is still nice to know that, as a woman, they can still attract the attention of the male counterpart. An International female point of view or purely "latin"........?
In any case, the story is, for me, finished, just be nice to see the outcome of both cases in the USA and in France which are still ongoing.

What happened regarding a maid in a luxury New York hotel suite in May was a "moral weakness," French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn said Sunday in an interview with French television station TF1.
He denied any violence or aggression, but said the incident was "an error, a mistake -- a mistake concerning my wife, my children, my friends" as well as the French people "who placed their hope for change in me."
Last month, a judge dismissed sexual assault charges against him in an international scandal that altered France's political landscape.
Strauss-Kahn was pulled off a Paris-bound plane in May in New York over accusations he sexually assaulted a Guinean maid in a luxury hotel suite in the city.
Days later, he resigned from the International Monetary Fund, spent a few days in jail and was put under house arrest.
