Can you believe it was ten years ago yesterday that the O.J. Simpson verdict came down? Sadly, it's one of those events where most people remember what they were doing when they heard. They estimate that 150 million people watched it live. I'll admit that I became slightly obsessed with this case. I invested way too much time in following it and way too much emotion in the outcome. The monstrous arrogance of that fucking piece of celebrity shit galled me. Sounds like it still galls me, huh? Those two folks who were just trying to live their lives have been dead for over ten years. People were paying O.J. for his autograph yesterday.
Frontline is profiling the case tonight at 9 EST, if you're interested. I can't watch.
