Justice Wears Many Clothes

The remainder of the article bout OJ was well-written. More AP:

"On Thursday, the Goldman family published a book about the killings that Simpson had written under the title, "If I Did It," about how he would have committed the crime had he actually done it. After a deal for Simpson to publish it fell through, a federal bankruptcy judge awarded the book's rights to the Goldman family, who retitled it "If I Did It: The Confessions of a Killer.""

I'm glad the Goldman Family are gaining some justice in all of this. They actually got to take over OJ's perspective on the matter, and tell it through his experience. Amazing. I'll bet the book does well. Maybe I should write a paper on this. It would all depend on whether or not I could see early drafts and compare them against final drafts. I guess it would all depend on what the family tells the publisher: confidential or not.

It would be a compelling comparison.

You're right, it would be an interstng study on rhetoric. At the same time, their kid/brother was fucking around with the Juice's wife. Somebody should have warned the poor fucker...

You're right. Why didn't someone warn him?

I mean, when I was growing up in the old neighborhood, there were dudes you knew about: Don't mess with their ladies because they will kill you. I'm not kidding.

It was part of the lore of the Lower East Side.

So, why didn't anyone tell Ron Goldman about OJ? Maybe it all happened before anyone could warn him. It's likely that the person with that advice didn't run in Goldman's circles.
