Yeah, the owners of one place I worked treated it like a waitress buffet. Theyíd have Ďa lineupí of all the women applying for waitstaff jobs, then ogle than all and hire the prettiest.

I was hired as a bartender months before it opened so I didnít know any of this. Of course I treated it like normal sexist world stuff at the time. I wasnít offended the way I would be now, or happy to be working with so much Ďtalentí, as they called it, the way I would have been were I not already in a relationship...

My favorite other story is how the owner would take out $100s from the bar till and vanish with the dishwasher after closing.

Oh yeah, Black people were called Canadians as a code and they were deemed non-tipping l. And I got a weird phone message from a regular asking to get his buddy a hookup with one of the waitresses.

Christ, telephone tech support was such an upgrade.

Oh Goddamnit.

My take on Norm is that he's a weirdo that appears to be smart but is really just charming, stupid, and mean with a great verbal memory. Kinda like Dennis Miller.

Norm is still funny as hell though, generally, but his last special was unwatchable. Then again in retrospect I say 'still funny as hell' based on youtube 'best of' clips from his podcast that's now a netflix show.

What everybody needs to remember about the Polanski case is that there was no loving internet. Now itís trivial to look up the facts of the case, but for the longest time people just repeated vaguely-remembered poo poo they heard someplace.

Hell, I remember when in was in high school (pre-common-internet) somebody laying out the Ďfactsí of the case for me. Stuff like it was consensual, itís just that her mom was mad, he thought she was an adult, blah blah blah blah. Iím curious where these Ďfactsí came from, but if a high school kid in Indiana is getting this interpretation Iím not surprised if a bunch of actors already primed to disbelieve the press heard the same thing.

Polanski got the Oscar in 2003, most people were not Extremely Online then, I donít think that happened for most people until about 2008-2010. Which is around the time people started backing out of support for the guy.

All yaíll talking about Polanski or Allen 25+ years ago remember there was no internet. The papers only announce his clearance, and past issues werenít available without actual research. If there was enough talking about whatever bullshit was thrown into the wind people simply wouldnít know. So you get a lot of people repeating what they heard. IMO thatís why they both had so many defenders until relatively recently when any idiot could find reality on the internet.

Also, goddamn now that I think about it the good friends in high school that talked about Polanskiís innocence, liked that Winger song 17, and knew all the details about Tracy Lordís (underage) porn career were one guy, not multiple guys. Quite creeped out now.
