37. it's hard to believe that

that somebody can get away with that for so long.

And people coming forward forty or fifty years later? Not that it is something that you'd forget (although, I have to admit, that at age 52 I do not remember much of anything from 1970, when I was 8), but really, how do you prove, or disprove, a forty year allegation?

I have to note as well, though, that it appears there may be some money involved "Savile's estate, believed to be worth about 4 million, was frozen by its executors, the NatWest bank, in view of the possibility that those alleging that they had been assaulted by Savile could make claims for damages."
