The last straw for O.J.

Yesterday, I wrote a post about how I am feeling sick. Today, I write a post about being sickened.

O.J. Simpson has written a book called, "If I Did It, Here's How It Happened." Apparently, some big publishing house felt the need to pay him $3.5 million (or thereabouts) to make up a completely theoretical, entirely hypothetical, undoubtedly purely make-believe, what-if type story to detail how he would have murdered Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

If I did it… yeah, that's kind of like Hitler saying, “Hey, you know I didn't really kill all those Jews, but if I did, here's how I would've done it."

This is completely and utterly disgusting to me. I guess that I can believe that there are lots of people in this world who would get some pleasure out of reading this book or watching the interview that Simpson is going to do at some point, but I can guarantee you that I will not be part of that audience.

I'll actually be working hard on my own book, "I didn't eat that last slice of pizza, but if I did, here's how it happened."

My students and I had a similar conversation in my publications class. Most of them are barely old enough to even know what this whole OJ thing is about, but they do get how WRONG this all is. What a freak!

He's a really sick jerk! Basically he's confessing. I would like to hear at least 1 person say "No, no O.J. really didn't do it!" I also heard about his publicist and her story of why she chose to release the book. She wants all abusers/killers to confess. Oh, come on...do you think we are all buying it? You knew it would make you a couple of million! DUH!

I am with you all the way on this one. I hope no one buys his book, even out of morbid curiosity. I hope he crashes and burns on this one. What a sick bastard.
