Roman PolanskiWashington Post political columnist Richard Cohen is so often wrong in his own area of expertise, and so clumsy at expressing himself (the satirical website Wonkette recognized him last year as "World's Worst Writer"), that one cringes to think what he might produce if he ventured into another realm -- say, celebrity justice. But venture he did this week in writing a "Thank you" column for Switzerland's decision not to extradite fugitive pedophile Roman Polanski.

"The Swiss got it right," Cohen began his July 13 column. "Their refusal to extradite Roman Polanski to the United States on a 33-year-old sex charge is the proper denouement for this mess of a case."
