No Ifs, Ands, or Buts -- They ALL Did It This Time
After shaming publishers (and the public) over O.J.'s cynical attempt to milk the murder of his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman by writing a "novel" entitled IF I DID IT, the Goldman family, who sued successfully (and garnered much public support) to gain the rights to the much despised text, are going to publish it after all.
Whether OJ did it or not, he's still a scumbag, for even thinking about writing such a book. But given their much publicized squabbling with O.J. over the years and their understandable efforts to block the book's publication last year so, by God, are the Goldmans. And anyone else involved in this.
Including the moral rubberneckers who will buy this book. No matter how much spin the Goldman's and their lawyers put on it.
Let's stop pretending. Maybe we should just scrap that silly "In God We Trust" slogan on the dollar bill and put something people can really get behind.
Something like "Fuck the moral high ground, let's cash in."
Or "Whatever it takes..."
Or "Everyone into the trough..."
