O.J. Simpson Is Back...
The controversial O.J. book, "If I Did It," will be repackaged and published, a New York literary agent announced today. In a statement, a rep for the agent proclaimed, "The family and publisher have pledged to leave Simpson's manuscript entirely intact, but they will also add key commentary." Okay so that means the murderer will be on the top of every page really big? Plans to publish the book -- and an accompanying TV special -- were scrapped last year after great public outcry. Last month, a federal judge granted the rights to the book to the family of Ron Goldman as part of the $33.5 million in damages Simpson owes them. Portions of the proceeds will go to the Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice. Still, buying this is like… well like buying Charles Manson’s book.
