My object all sublime
I shall achieve in time --
To let the punishment fit the crime,
The punishment fit the crime;
And make each pris'ner 'pent
A source of innocent merriment,
Of innocent merriment!
("Mikado," Gilbert & Sullivan.)
Now, it's big hot news -- Bill took advantage of women, some of them well-known names, and got himself ... wow ... a string of -- lovers? victims?
Yep, cheating on his wife, cheating the laws of the land, he's accused of having drugged these women -- the women themselves claim that's how he got them in bed with him.
Hey, these aren't puritan times. Golly, there are a lot of "sinful" sexy folks -- male and female. Why are we hell-bent on digging into famous people?
Here's a secret -- there are still big name, famous, important guys who haven't been exposed yet! How do I know? Because, being the wife of a celeb, I occasionally hear the grim, gross, gossipy truth about other celebrities.

If you want to warn your children about evil guys like him, just go ahead and state what you are compelled to state about him, but don't destroy him, don't throw the artist Cosby and what he spent his life building, into the dumpster.
There are lots of guys we haven't attacked yet -- Congresspersons, CEO's, leaders, conductors, composers, bankers, brokers -- as well as jailbirds who got caught.
Hey, why aren't we punishing, attacking, destroying the powerful supporters of guns? How come they're untouchables?
I say let Cosby alone.
Remember what the Bible says:
So when they continued asking him,
he lifted up himself, and said unto them,
He that is without sin among you,
let him first cast a stone....
