The opening statement of "In Exile" (by Michael Cieply, Nov. 22) is unbelievable. " 'The U.S. has this wonderful Constitution,' says fugitive movie director Roman Polanski, gulping a luncheon of oysters and white wine in a Paris restaurant recently. 'But it is troubled by other things that it has to get under control. The Puritanism.' " Just what right does a criminal have to tell the rest of us what is wrong with us? How can we even think of allowing such a widely publicized criminal to be given not equal but special consideration under our laws?
