So O. J. Simpson did it. No, not that. Obviously he didn’t do that–he was acquitted. I’m referring to the fact that, as previously posited, O. J. Simpson has indeed written a memoir (or had someone write one for him) in which he will explain how he would have killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, had he actually been the person who killed them. The New York Times reports that ReganBooks will release the book, If I Did It, on November 30.
Even better, there will be two one-hour TV specials, titled, “O. J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened,” broadcast on Fox (what, PBS has better things to do?) on November 27 and 29. Judith Regan herself conducted the interviews and produced the TV specials. In the Washington Post, in “The TV Column,” Lisa de Moraes quotes an anonymous Hollywood executive who calls Judith Regan a “sick genius.”
Personally, I think that all these imagination exercises are likely to help O. J. on his continued quest to find the real killer. After all, to catch a killer, you have to think like one.
