If I Did It.... Kidding, I Did!

Have you heard?

In what is shaping up to be another bizarre milestone in the murder case involving O.J. Simpson, Fox announced Tuesday that it plans to air a two-part interview with Simpson on November 27 and 29 (within the November sweeps) in which, according to the Fox news release, he "will tell how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes." The news release quoted Fox reality chief Mike Darnell as saying, "This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. It's the definitive last chapter in the Trial of the Century." The person interviewing Simpson has not been identified. The interview is scheduled to air days before Fox's corporate sibling, Harper Collins, publishes Simpson's If I Did It, Here's How It Happened on November 30.

Please, please, please let there be a law either on the books or put on the books ASAP that as soon as that interview airs, O.J. gets arrested. Just take him away. No dancing Judge Itos, no dragged out, year- long case, no mayhem. He's just... gone... and not one news program mentions it. No story. He just's gone. Oh, that would be a perfect world.

Amazing that was over 10 years ago.

I still remember sitting in the conference room when the verdict was read. All of us, both black and white, were shocked and dismayed.
