1. oh puh-lese
he wasn't interesting the first time (I was one of the few who refused to obsess over the round the clock coverage) and even less this time. not a blast at the OP just a comment on the MSM orgasm over a 2nd shot at the same story.

9. I don't think ANYONE has obsessed about it this time around...
I certainly didn't follow any of the stories past the initial arrest...

Which, admittedly is why it is such a curiosity...

36. He said he was sorry!
and that he didn't know that he was doing anything wrong! That judge is just being a big meanie.

Still, it was nice to see the Steve Martin defense in action: Steve.. what do I say to the tax man when he comes to my door and says, 'You.. have never paid taxes'?" Two simple words. Two simple words in the English language: "I forgot!" How many times do we let ourselves get into terrible situations because we don't say "I forgot"? Let's say you're on trial for armed robbery. You say to the judge, "I forgot armed robbery was illegal." Let's suppose he says back to you, "You have committed a foul crime. you have stolen hundreds and thousands of dollars from people at random, and you say, 'I forgot'?" Two simple words: Excuuuuuse me!

In retrospect, maybe he should have gone with the Chewbacca Defense.

8. From what I've read about that judge,
she's tough on sentencing.

Fun, huh?

7. OJ is this month's
Natalee.

Man, he looks bad. Jail's obviously not agreeing with him.

Justice is such a big, big bitch, ain't it, OJ?

Well, his party has come to an end. How very rewarding.

12. Why should the Goldmans leave?

24. Oh yeah, he basically got the mandatory minimum
and everything else running concurrent except the armed robbery. He does 6-7 years at least.

30. I remember watching the white bronco 'chase' with my kids on TV
like it was yesterday.


Dan Abrams is saying he has to be protected in Prison,
Hopefully this is the end of OJ's news headlines.

We went to the movies at The Castro and it was just ending when we got back to my apt. I wanted to watch it but was distracted by this cute guy gettin' all nekkid in front o' the Tee-Vee.
