“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Best-seller for sure

With the right to his own name affirmed by a judge recently, Juice has decided to cash in on his adventure...

O.J. Simpson is confessing. Hypothetically, that is.

The former football great, who was acquitted in criminal court 11 years ago of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, reportedly has been paid a whopping $3.5 million to write about the double murder that shocked and riveted the nation in 1994, according to a detailed report in the new National Enquirer.

But Simpson is not actually confessing to the murder — rather, he’s writing a “hypothetical” book — which the Enquirer reports is tentatively being called “If I Did It.”

What always struck me as surreal is the racial divide this case exposed: 9 out of 10 whites believed O.J. got away with 2 counts of cold-blooded murder, and 9 out of 10 blacks thought he did it too, but were glad he got off. What's up with that?

I wonder if he'll address in his book, the ongoing hunt for the real killer on Florida's public golf courses.

Can we convince OJ to base jump, maybe even without a chute? No gasping when he splats.
