If you meet the Weinstein on the road, kill him.

Producer Harvey Weinstein, director James Toback, photographer Terry Richardson and… the list keeps growing of media markers who, blazing down Rodeo Drive or Madison Ave, leave a wake of sexually harassed, molested and raped victims trailing out behind them.    What do these producers of our media culture have in common?
