This week marks twenty years since O.J. Simpson viciously slaughtered his ex-wife and a Good Samaritan who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I knew this was going to become a despicable travesty when people actually cheered on O.J. during the infamous Bronco chase. At the time, I followed the trial mostly because of the vivid, excellent writing of Dominick Dunne in Vanity Fair, and I can still remember the total silence in my office after we heard the verdict.
Let's hope on this anniversary that there is no misplaced sympathy for the murderer, only remembrances of the victims.
