Another reason to go for a ride...

In America, at least, it's deja vu all over again. OJ Simpson has been arrested. You wait and see -- this is going to dominate the news channels for months to come. Not just the new trial, but all the old footage will be shown over, and over, and over, and over, and....you get my point.

Anyway, I can't stop it, but I CAN go for a ride instead. Woohoo!

I think everyone feels the way DG does, and the media will pick up on that. My guess is that the latest OJ thing is going to go away quickly. He'll quietly plead out on the charges, do a couple of years, and no one will care.

Just a guess.

Although it's not lost on me that the two most prominent "alphabet soup" personalities on the American landscape are OJ and DG...

Just sayin' ...

One can certainly hope, can't one?

I love OJ. A good day always begins with OJ.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll throw away the key.
