The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

YAY! We won!

Remember last Friday I posted an e-mail message I had sent to Fox and its local affiliate? Well Monday, I received two e-mail messages from the local affiliate, one in the morning thanking me for writing and telling me they would pass it along to the network. The second one came after 4 p.m. and consisted of the following press release:

News Corporation Cancels Simpson Book
and TV Special

New York, NY – November 20, 2006 –

News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch today announced that the company has canceled publication of the book "If I Did It" as well as the corresponding Fox broadcast network special.

Mr. Murdoch said: “I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project. We are sorry for any pain this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown-Simpson.”

Apparently the interview had already been filmed, so it may appear on TMZ or elsewhere online. The question now is, what are they going to do with the thousands of books that have already been printed.

So - who says the powers-that-be don't listen to the public sometimes? If you have something that's really bothering you, write a letter or a send an e-mail message, you never know - hollering and bitching loud enough may just work!

The very idea of that book was just in such poor taste.

Unfortunately, SOMEONE will publish it. But hopefully not someone that's gonna give him a big honkin' advance.
