Arnold Update

ARNOLD UPDATE….A couple of days ago I joked that before long it would be easier to make a list of women who hadn’t been groped by Arnold than it would be to make a list of those who had. Columnist Steve Lopez reports today that at least one person seems to have taken me seriously:

Hi Steve,

I felt it is important to speak up after all the terrible accusations in the L.A. Times, a paper that I read faithfully even when I am abroad at film festivals like Cannes.

If 15 or 16 women have come forth with accusations, then I can give you a list of at least 50 who regard Arnold Schwarzenegger as a total gentleman….

Well, that’s comforting, isn’t it?

(And for the record, one more woman came forward on Monday, so as of election day the total number of accusers stands at sweet 16. That’s enough for a tennis tournament!)
