You gotta wonder about OJ
What I wonder about is how he told those kids that he is now capitalizing upon the murder by publishing his gross tripe of a book called "If I did it" that Regan Publishing is marketing as his confession. His confession! Scary stuff, but even scarier is that 10 years after the trial, due to double jeapordy laws in the USA, he can confess from the rooftops and there is absolutely nothing to be done. He cannot be tried again.
Can you imagine the scene?
OJ: "Kids, come in her for a second, I want to talk to you."
Kids march into the room fearing the murder who is their father.
OJ: " I bet you have been wondering what I've been working on when I'm on the computer. No, I'm not taking part in NaBoWriMo, but I am actually writing a book. It's about to be published and I wanted to tell you what it's about."
Kids stare silently, knowing what is about to come.
OJ: "I'm writing a book telling how I would have killed your mother, IF I had killed her. But you guys know I didn't, right? Because I was never convicted of the crime, remember?"
Kids mumble fake agreement.
OJ: "The book is going to be called "If I Did It". The publishers are 'mistakenly' marketing it as a confession, but it really isn't. It's just a hypothesis I've created over the years. You know how much I loved your mother, and besides, the glove didn't fit at the trial, remember?"
Kids look numb.
OJ: "Do you have any questions about the book?"
Kids stare down at feet and mumble "nope" in unison.
OJ: "OK then, you can go back to your homework."
Kids run off, and discuss how they can escape from this madman. Running away and hopping the rails all of a sudden sounds really attractive.
It's apparent that his NFL pension and paid speaking engagements aren't enough to keep him knee deep in golf balls, so he had to find yet another way to fund his Florida lifestyle. Why not publish a tell-all book. There can be no consequence from this other than to make money. His publishers have no ulterior motive either; they want to make money.
But Fox News agreeing to an interview with this murderer who confesses to his crimes with a smirk, knowing full well that he's gotten off and can not capitalize while remaining free. What were they thinking? Fox news is the worst kind of sleazy biased reporting, thanks to it's owner Rupert Murdoch, who seems not to understand that news is supposed to be non-biased. Does Murdoch need more money? Does Fox need more money? What about the companies foolish enough to advertise during this show. Are they all so broke that they can push aside their morality and allow this murderer to show American how he outsmarted the justice system?
I don't know about you, but I have no plans to ever read this book, watch the TV show, and I will boycott any and all companies that advertise on this spectacle of a confessional. I hope you all do as well. Stumble It! JBlog Me
