    I was going to college full time during the trial. I remember the awkward moment when some students cheered in the recreation room when he was found innocent.
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    Watching the A&E special now. Right off the bat, it's interesting how he looks down to the right when being sworn in. And the questions immediately following. And arguing about how he's being asked. Guilty as fuck.

    I was in grade 10 science lab. Even then we all knew it was horribly wrong.

    Yes! I still cannot believe that with all that evidence, Simpson was found not guilty because Fuhrman was a racist. The evidence really piled up when that aspect was kept out of the civil trial. Seeing how smug and cocky Simpson was about the entire questioning, and then hearing him speaking about his ex-wife and the way he abused her (which he admitted responsibility for, but denied striking her... wtf?!?!) was quite eye-opening. The poor Brown and Goldman families.

    How is the book? I just don't know if I can read it... I think I'd end up wanting to bang my head against the wall!

    Well in OJ's words, he was the most selfless, wonderful husband on the earth. Everything wrong with the marriage was Nicole's fault and she admitted that to him many times during the separation period before the murders.

    The foreword by the ghostwriter was eye opening and painted a different story.

    I expect I'll get to the chapter about the murders on my way home today. That will be hard to read.

    I finished the book yesterday and wow. Wowser wow.

    He did it. And he confessed.

    The chapter on the murders didn't go into detail about how he killed them, but the conversation leading up to the killings and what each of them did and said, yeah, it was in that chapter. He remembers taking the knife from "Charlie" and then he doesn't remember anything until he was standing there, covered in blood, and Nicole and Ron were dead.

    I still cannot believe that he was acquitted with so much evidence against him. Motherfucker.

    I'm so glad the Goldman family was able to get the rights to this book to satisfy the civil judgment in part, and to let the world know that he was the killer, in his own words.

    I still think it was amazing poetic justice that Fred Goldman basically put OJ behind bars. Karma is a bitch
