*Rosie O’Donnell returned to The View today for the first time since her epic battle with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck in 2007. The visit went rather smoothly – until the topic turned to Woody Allen’s alleged sexual abuse of his daughter.

So many times we hear of men being accused of rape or pedophilia; and there is always that little voice in the back of my mind that asks, “But what if he didn’t do it? How could he prove this?
