Murdoch Kills Simpson Book And Special

[Posted by reader_iam]

Guess O.J. Simpson can go back to devoting his full attention to finding Nicole Brown Simpson's and Ron Goldman's real murderers now.

I'm curious: Do you think there would have been as much of an outcry if the book's profits had specifically been earmarked to pay off the civil judgment against Simpson on behalf of the Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman estates? (I can't imagine that the families of the victims would have been particularly happy with that especially since I don't believe that it was ever about money.)

What if the book were titled "I Did It" and O.J. had actually confessed, but still claimed the bucks for his kids? What if he'd done the former two things AND used the funds to pay off the civil obligation?

Any other questions we should be asking?
