The magic "IF," probably not what Stanislavsky was thinking...

I just realized the brilliance of this idea. O.J. could write a whole series, taking unsolved murders and describing how he would have murdered the victims. Bravo, scumbag.

But, did O.J. really "write" this stuff? I mean, I can picture him with a rage diary, but did he really write "an account of the murders that is 'so detailed and so chillingly realistic' that readers will likely come to the conclusion that Simpson committed the crimes'?

Incidentally, do you think he'll record an audio version of this book?

::shiver:: I just gave myself the willies.

I don't think it will change many peoples opinion of him, or their feelings of his guilt or innocence. Hopefully, it will be seen for what it is, a digusting grab for money and attention.

Indeed it is. But Judith Regan seems to believe publishing his book means making it public, not endorsing it. I wonder. It seems like she's splitting hairs there.

Makes me think of a Nietzsche quote: He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.

Or Pope.

Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
As to be hated need but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.
- Alexander Pope, Essay on Man

"Bravo, scumbag."

I've thought and read a lot of things about this story, but you've described it most succinctly and accurately.
