According to 2005 court documents obtained by the Associated Press, Bill Cosby gave women quaaludes (sleeping pills) to women he wanted to have sex with!: http://news.yahoo.com/apnewsbreak-cosby ... 47466.html

Sad ... very sad ... every day, it seems that yet another one of my childhood heroes either dies or is revealed to be just another ordinary fool.

I wonder if he was forced to make that admission, or if he is perhaps becoming senescent?

Doesn't actually change his legal status, firstly it was settled out of court and secondly the incident occurred too long ago so is now outside of the statute of limitations for Cosby to be prosecuted.

Does it matter? His name and reputation are mud.

I'm afraid the signs were there,it's been a familiar scenario in the UK recently,where the cases in particular of
'family entertainers' Jimmy Saville and Rolf Harris have seen our illusions of them shattered by revelations of their dark sides.

judging by all the misbehavior of the movers and shakers, I guess Aristotle was right when he said there was no greatness untinged by madness.
