Barking Moonbat Of The Decade

Would you pay $222,000 for this man’s whodunit book? Me? No. But I would pay $222,000 to be the one who pulls the switch on the electric chair for this creep.

I derived great pleasure from watching his body twitch as the amperage slowly increased and his head started smoking and his eyeballs popped out of the socket and screams of unendurable pain escaped his tortured lungs and I began giggling insanely and the rest of the prison crew around me clapped their hands and joined in the fun at my little barbecue ....

That’s how it would have happened ... if I did it ...

Outcry As O.J. Simpson’s Book Goes On eBay
(DAILY MAIL - UK) - 13:13pm on 24th November 2006

imageimageOnline auction site eBay is under fire for selling copies of O.J. Simpson’s hypothetical story of how he would have killed ex-wife Nicole Brown.

Publisher Harper Collins cancelled next week’s release after a public outcry and said all copies would be destroyed, but two copies are currently on eBay. Offers are currently reaching $222,000.

O.J. Simpson recently admitted he participated in the ill-fated “If I Did It” book and interview project for one reason - personal profit, acknowledging that any financial gain was “blood money”.

“This was an opportunity for my kids to get their financial legacy,” Simpson said in interviews this week after the book deal was abandoned by its publisher. “My kids understand. I made it clear that it’s blood money, but it’s no different than any of the other writers who did books on this case,” Simpson said.

The book, said to describe how he theoretically would have committed the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, had been scheduled for release on November 30 following the airing of a two-part Simpson interview on Fox on Monday and Wednesday.

Owners of Fox Broadcasting and publisher Harper Collins, cancelled the project after a public outcry and objections by advertisers and booksellers. In a radio interview on Wednesday, Simpson said the project was not a confession to the slayings.

“I made it clear from the first day I met the writer that I wasn’t involved,” Simpson said in a telephone interview broadcast on Miami’s WTPS-AM, adding, “I said, ‘I have nothing to confess.’”

Goldman’s family, meanwhile, asked News Corporation to turn over its rights to the now-cancelled book and interview, an attorney said Wednesday. In two AP telephone interviews this week from his Florida home, Simpson declined to say how much of an advance he received for the book but said it was less than the 3.5 million US dollars that has been reported.

He said the money has already been spent, including some he used to meet his tax obligations. Simpson said he was convinced the book would have been a best-seller. “My kids would have been coming into a lot of money,” he said, adding he desperately needs the cash because his retirement funds are dwindling.

Prepublication sales for “If I Did It,” had been strong but not sensational. It cracked the top 20 of bookseller Web site Amazon.com last weekend but had fallen to No. 51 by the time the cancellation was announced. Publisher Judith Regan has portrayed the book as representing “O.J.’s confession,” and it reportedly contains a chapter where he explains how he could have committed the killings.

But the former football star says he did not commit the murders. He said the book was ghostwritten. “When I saw what he wrote, I said, ‘Maybe you did it because they’re saying the chapter contains things only the killer would know.’ Simpson said. “I don’t know these things,” he added.

Simpson said on Wednesday he never spoke to Regan until taping the TV interview. “In the course of the interview I said, ‘This is blood money and I hope nobody reads it,”’ Simpson told the AP. He added, “Everybody who has written a book about this has taken blood money; you can’t have selective morality.”

Simpson said he was disappointed by Regan’s ‘confession’ statement, although he noted, “I thought, ‘This lady probably thinks I did it and I didn’t.’” Simpson insisted he did not try to peddle the book to anyone, saying ‘a guy’ he would not identify brought the proposal to one of his family members.

Simpson said he told a representative of the publisher he would not allow the book’s publication if it contained any graphic descriptions of “cutting or stabbing.” Asked how he felt about the effect the book would have on the victims’ families, Simpson expressed bitterness toward Goldman’s father, Fred, who has denounced Simpson as a liar and murderer.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
