Your mail could've waited." Daemon followed me into the kitchen. "What is it? Just books?" Grabbing the OJ from the fridge, I sighed. People who didn't heart books didn't understand.
Jennifer L. Armentrout (Onyx (Lux, #2))
The irony of American history is the tendency of good white Americanas to presume racial innocence. Ignorance of how we are shaped racially is the first sign of privilege. In other words. It is a privilege to ignore the consequences of race in America.
Tim Wise

This would be the Michigan version of the OJ trial, this time, with a guilty verdict.
Mark M. Bello (Betrayal High (Zachary Blake Legal Thriller, #5))
Därför tänker jag bara vara kär i honom ungefär till torsdag, eller kanske fredag. Sen ska jag bli klok igen, men till dess, oj jag är så kär i honom så jag tror jag spricker!
Astrid Lindgren
He humphed and grabbed a carton of milk, then chugged directly from the cardboard spout. Mallory and I watched him, the same grimace on both our faces. Sure, I did the same thing with OJ, but he was a boy, and it was milk. That was just gross.
Chloe Neill (Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires, #2))
A sonnet might look dinky, but it was somehow big enough to accommodate love, war, death, and O.J. Simpson. You could fit the whole world in there if you shoved hard enough.
Anne Fadiman (Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader)
There were more courses than O.J. has alibis.
Erin Gruwell (The Freedom Writers Diary)

O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
For we have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division, and conflict, and cynicism. We can tackle race only as spectacle-as we did in the OJ trial-or in the wake of tragedy, as we did in the aftermath of Katrina-or as a fodder for the nightly news. We can play Reverend Wright's sermons on every channel, every day and talk about them from now until the election, and make the only question in this campaign whether or not the American people think that I somehow believe or sympathize with his most offensive words. We can pounce on some gaffe by a Hillary supporter as evidence that she's playing the race card, or we can speculate on whether white men will all flock to John McCain the general election regardless of his policies. We can do that. But if we do, I can tell you that in the next election, we'll be talking about some other distraction. And then another one. And then another one. And nothing will change. That is one option. Or, at this moment, in this election, we can come together and say, "Not this time.
Barack Obama
Oj, pójdziewa w żyto, Boś dobra, kobieto!
Henryk Sienkiewicz (Szkice węglem)
It's strange. They say people don't change, but I say they're wrong. People change, but it's usually for the worse.

Oj budi svoj! Al’ brat ti budi braći, I radi za svijet, al’ ne slušaj pljeska; I ljubi svijet, al’ ne nadaj se plaći, Jer hvala ljudska voda je vrh pijeska, U tvojoj svijesti hvala ti je trudu, S poštena tekar lica teče pošten znoj, I nijesi, brate, živio zaludu, Kad jesi svoj!

It also made me think about the fact that all relationships are messy, and that everyone suffers through their fair share of pain- and that sometimes more than their fair share.
O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
Imagine you had a secret so terrible you couldn’t tell anybody. Ever. Because if you actually said the words out loud the world would see who you really were.
O.J. Mullen (Three Sisters)
When people die we put them on a pedestal, which makes it even more difficult to let them go.

O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
I don't like the taste it leaves in my mouth. ... Besides, OJ tastes better. Is that supposed to be a pun? If so, I'm telling on you.
Fawn Routson (Sak'art'velos Ukdavi: (Of the Immortal))
Try feeding a five-day hunger with some OJ that tastes like a cup of freezer burn, and nothing to wash it down but a bunch of words you can't get out of your head.
Norman Partridge (Dark Harvest)
He stopped at a Dunkin' Donuts and bought me an OJ and a bagel. Bribery wasn't going to make me forgive him, but I couldn't say no to carbs and juice.
Shaun David Hutchinson (The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza)
Make some OJ out of lemons and leave the world wondering how you did it.

- Pieprzyłaś się z nim, tak? - Musisz być taka wulgarna? - Oj, zapomniałam, że ty podczas stosunku zawsze słyszysz dźwięki kwartetu skrzypcowego w tle. Nie chciałabym zagłuszyć skrzypiec, ale lepiej żebyś zbudziła się z tych marzeń.
Alastair MacNeill (Double-blind)
Ne treba njegov život, ne treba njegov rad i dar! Mnogo je tri odlikaša, dosta je dva, a možda samo jedan, a možda nijedan ne treba životu!... Oj, groblje! Prebriši iz ove mature što ne treba! Zbriši naročito "odabrane i srećne"! Nema dovoljno sreće ni mesta za njih! Razboli ih, umori ih, uvuci se u njih kako znaš, ali ih zbriši!...
Isidora Sekulić (Kronika palanačkog groblja)
Siblings are the only people who know each other their whole lives, and the bond between an only brother and an only sister seems especially strong.
O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
Many assume that being the victim of a crime leaves you powerless. Those of us who live in that world know all too well that we are survivors and we are a mighty force.
O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
This is a love story too. And, like a lot of love stories, it doesn't have a happy ending.
O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
Man has created technology. Technology has created man; what we are today. Electricity is our way of life. Without it many would perish.
O.J. Rendchen (Detection Man!)
She stooped toward O.J. Berman, who, like many short men in the presence of tall women, had an aspiring mist in his eye.
Truman Capote (Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Stories)
A mój mąż...Dobrze, że go nie ma, jest w pracy. Surowo mi przykazał...Wie, że lubie opowiadać o naszej miłości...Jak w ciągu jednej nocy uszyłam sobie z bandaży sukienke ślubną.Sama. A bandaże zbierałyśmy z dziewczynami przez cały miesiąc. To były zdobyczne bandaże...Mialam prawdziwą suknię ślubną! Zachowała sie fotografia:jestem w tej sukience i w butach, ale butów nie widać, tylko ja pamiętam, że byłam w butach wojskowych. A pasek zmajstrowałam ze starej furażerki...Doskonały pasek. Ale cóż to ja...O takich głupstwach...Mąż zabronił mi pisnąć choćby slowo o milości, ani mru-mru, mam opowiedzieć tylko o wojnie. Taki jest surowy. Uczył mnie z mapą...Dwa dni mnie uczył, gdzie był jaki front...Gdzie walczyła nasza jednostka... Zaraz wezmę, zapisałam to sobie. Odczytam pani. Czemu się smiejesz? Oj, jak ładnie się smiejesz! Ja tez sie śmiałam. No, bo jaki ze mnie historyk! Lepiej ci pokaże zdjęcie, na którym jestem w sukience z bandaży...Tak się tam sobie podobam...W białej sukience..."

Still, I've heard it said that all stories are basically love stories, and my story is no exception. This is a love story, too. And, like a lot of love stories, it doesn't have a happy ending.
O.J. Simpson (If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer)
The reason why there are so many police officers surrounding this house is because they want to make sure that we do not remove anything before a search warrant is issued. They have made it crystal clear that they want no Kardashians on this one.” Kardashian. As in O.J. The man had changed law lexicon forever.
Harlan Coben (Back Spin (Myron Bolitar, #4))
. . . I'm not sure we always respect the mysteries of the locked door and the dangers of the storytelling problem. There are times when we demand an explanation when an explanation really isn't possible, and, as we'll explore in the upcoming chapters of this book, doing so can have serious consequences. 'After the O.J. Simpson verdict, one of the jurors appeared on TV and said with absolute conviction, "Race had absolutely nothing to do with my decision,"' psychologist Joshua Aronson says. 'But how on earth could she know that? What my [and others] research . . . show[s] is that people are ignorant of the things that affect their actions, yet they rarely feel ignorant. We need to accept our ignorance and say "I don't know" more often.
Malcolm Gladwell (Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking)
The Simpson verdict was your forced atonement. O.J. awakened your collective white rage. That or you’re obsessed with him because he’s the one that got away, the one who challenged your view of whiteness, made you madder than anybody—that is, until Obama. But there’s little real justification for Obama hate, except that he was a black man in charge of our country, and many whites wanted to take it back and make it great again. Hence, the election of Donald Trump as president.
Michael Eric Dyson (Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America)
Am I oversimplifying here? Yes. Is all our media stupid? Far from it. Were intelligent, valuable things written about the rush to war (and about O.J. and Monica, and then Laci Peterson and Michael Jackson, et al.)? Of course. But: Is some of our media very stupid? Hoo boy. Does stupid, near-omnipresent media make us more tolerant toward stupidity in general? It would be surprising if it didn’t. Is human nature such that, under certain conditions, stupidity can come to dominate, infecting the brighter quadrants, dragging everybody down with it?
George Saunders (The Braindead Megaphone)
In his book, originally titled If I Did It, subsequently published as I Did It when the Goldman family won the rights based on their civil suit, O. J. Simpson recounts the killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman as if O.J. had actually committed the crimes. From my perspective of forty-plus years in law enforcement and behavioral analysis, this book, written years after O.J.’s acquittal for the murders, was just another display of Mr. Simpson’s contempt for moral standards, his sense of power over and remaining anger at Nicole. In other words: the actions of a sociopathic narcissist.
John E. Douglas (The Killer Across the Table)

As to the central fact in the case, it is my view that Simpson murdered his ex-wife and her friend on June 12. Any rational analysis of the events and evidence in question leads to that conclusion. This is true whether one considers evidence not presented to the jury—such as the results of Simpson’s polygraph examination and his flight with Al Cowlings on June 17—or just the evidence established in court. Notwithstanding the prosecution’s many errors, the evidence against Simpson at the trial was overwhelming. Simpson had a violent relationship with his ex-wife, and tensions between them were growing in the weeks leading up to the murders. Simpson had no alibi for the time of the murders, nor was his Bronco parked at his home during that time. Simpson had a cut on his left hand on the day after the murders, and DNA tests showed conclusively that it was Simpson’s blood to the left of the shoe prints leaving the scene. Nicole’s blood was found on a sock in his bedroom, and Goldman’s blood—as well as Simpson’s—was found in the Bronco. Hair consistent with Simpson’s was found on the killer’s cap and on Goldman’s shirt. The gloves that Nicole bought for Simpson in 1990 were almost certainly the ones used by her killer.

less rotted and she nibbles it smiling. “Look,” I show her, “there’s holes in my cake where the chocolates were till just now.” “Like craters,” she says.

The 49ers didn’t have a first-round pick—it had been traded years earlier to the Bills in the O.J. Simpson trade—and Walsh was hoping to take Simms at the top of the second round. But the Giants took Simms seventh overall, and Walsh had to settle for Joe Montana with the last pick in the third round.

Snusmummriken stannade i mossan och en liten olust flög över honom. Mumintrollet som väntade och längtade så förskräckligt. Som satt därhemma och väntade och beundrade och sa, naturligtvis ska du vara fri. Så klart att du ska ge dig iväg. Om jag förstår att du måste få vara ensam ibland. Och samtidigt var mumintrollets ögon svarta av besvikelse och hjälplös längtan. Oj, oj sa Snusmumriken och fortsatte att gå. Oj, oj, oj. Han har så mycket känslor, detdär trollet.

The fixed idea may also be perceived as 'maxim', 'principle', 'standpoint', and the like. Archimedes,86 to move the earth, asked for a standpoint outside it. Men sought continually for this standpoint, and every one seized upon it as well as he was able. This foreign standpoint is the world oj mind, of ideas, thoughts, concepts, essences; it is heaven. Heaven is the 'standpoint' from which the earth is moved, earthly doings surveyed and - despised. To assure to themselves heaven, to occupy the heavenly standpoint firmly and for ever - how painfully and tirelessly humanity struggled for this!

      Later we went back to Ryan’s house and hung out. He seemed like a cool guy, and we had a lot in common. Nothing about Ryan suggested that his beliefs were fundamentally different from mine. Ryan offered Katie and me something to drink after a while: he had OJ, Coke, bottled water, and rice milk. I’d never heard of rice milk, so I asked if I could give it a try. It wasn’t the best thing I’d ever tasted, but it wasn’t bad either.       Why, I wondered, would this guy my own age deprive himself of a glass of milk, a Big Mac, or a plate of cheese fries? Given how much I enjoyed those things, his decision to abstain based on a set of beliefs actually struck me as rather commendable. He had to feel pretty strongly about it to refuse something so delicious. So I asked him why he chose to be vegan. His answer—that he wasn’t willing to cause suffering to other living creatures, and then his recitation of lots of intense and awful details about that suffering—changed my life.       Effective that day, I was vegan, and have been ever since. It just made sense. Why should I eat something that caused an animal to suffer when I could choose to buy something else? Rice milk wasn’t as good as milk, I thought, but it wasn’t bad enough to justify buying cow’s milk, which, as Ryan explained, came from an animal that was continually impregnated to maximize her dairy production, and her male calves were likely slaughtered for veal.

But in that lightning moment that exposed the country’s deep racial divide, there was something about O.J.’s going free that, to my surprise, made me inexplicably happy.

Akiyuki Nosaka (Ballada o Narayamie. Opowieści niesamowite z prozy japońskiej)
I USA vill nativister definiera landet utifrån hudfärg och tro (nämligen vit och kristen). Å andra sidan är den fortsatta materiella oj'mlikheten ett skäl till att behålla rasidentiteter, för hur ska vi kunna diskutera ojämlikhet som beror på hudfärg utan att referera till grupper som definieras av hudfärg?
Kwame Anthony Appiah (Identitetsillusionen : Lögnerna som binder oss samman)
They saw the O.J. job as a crass microcosm. It was cocaine and tit jobs. It was health club narcissism and the two-way bondage of five-figure monthly alimony payments. The bottom-level audience defined the crime. They wanted O.J.’s meretricious lifestyle. They couldn’t have it. They settled for a skanky morality play that told them that lifestyle was venal.
James Ellroy (My Dark Places: A True Crime Autobiography)
Black life has no value in the white community. Locking the black man up is a sport. OJ killed a white woman. The prize of all prizes. And the message you heard when all the black people applauded and cheered was that since black lives don’t have value on that side of the tracks, and since they never have, white lives have no value in our community. And that’s not being evil. That’s playing by the rules the man created. You’re watching the oppressed imitate the values and ways of the oppressor. Hate begets hate.” “That’s evil. To even think, let alone say,

If you do not ask a question, you will never know the answer. Always question yourself, others, and everything because it does not hurt anyone to do so, though it may hurt your ego when you get your answer.
O.J. Daffodil (letsberealisticpeople: A Strange Journey through Reality)
Let's face the reality that if OJ Simpson had been poor or even lower-middle-class there would have been no media attention. Justice was never a central issue. Our nation's tabloid passion to know about the lives of the rich made class a starting point.
bell hooks (Where We Stand: Class Matters)
Why was Simpson called "OJ" except in some kind of branding or headlinese that said, "Look, this guy is sweet, wholseome, and nourishing (and 'Orenthal' is just too fancy)? You can have him for breakfast." (And "Sweetness" and "Sweet" are nicknames often given to black men.) Is "OJ" that far away from Jell-O? Wasn't that extended advertising campaign a way of saying you can trust our pudding because Bill Cosby likes it—sweet, wholesome, and pretty?

We were not interested in making life better for some some people. We wanted everyone to thrive and accomplish their dreams in Los Angeles: gays, straights, blacks, whites, Latinos, Asians, Russians, Armenians, Pacific Islanders, and many others. Even when my detractors couldn't believe that I stood for equality and fairness, I'd always govern with those guiding principles.

It would be amazing if we could do away with most of the irrational thinking that plagues us, but whenever we start talking about eradicating a group’s perspectives, however backward they might be, we risk becoming a version of what we are trying to defeat.

Nicole Brown Simpson died one month and one day after my mother. Her daughter was only eight, but I kept thinking she was twelve. Her neighbor found her, but I kept thinking her daughter had. I remember watching that slow-motion chase intently, hoping O.J. would follow through on his threats to kill himself. He entered my life, however distantly, just when I needed a killer upon which to focus my anger.

Fame,” O.J. said, walking along, “is a vapor, popularity is an accident, and money takes wings. The only thing that endures is character.” “Where’d you get that from?” Cowlings asked. “Heard it one night on TV in Buffalo,” O.J. said. “I was watching a late hockey game on Canadian TV and all of a sudden a guy just said it. Brought me right up out of my chair. I never forgot it.” —From an article by Paul Zimmerman, Sports Illustrated, November 26, 1979, on O. J. Simpson

Kormak wszedł do pokoju, wyrywając go z zamyślenia. - To tu wyznała ci miłość - zauważył. - Daj sobie spokój. - Ale taka prawda - dodał przyjaciel, wskazując na biurko. - To tutaj doszło do przeobrażenia Chyłki, którą znamy, w Chyłkę, którą dopiero poznamy. O ile oczywiście ją znajdziemy. Kordian zignorował tę uwagę. - Swoją drogą nigdy nie spodziewałem się, że stać byłoby ją na taki romantyzm. - "Choruje na ciebie" to nie do końca... - Nie jest romantyczne? Daj spokój. W jej wykonaniu to... a bo ja wiem? Jakby przeciętny człowiek stanął pod oknem i wyśpiewał miłosną serenadę. - Choroba to niekończenie porównanie, które... - Oj tam - uciął chudzielec. - Obaj wiemy, że zaprzeczasz tylko dla porządku.

Bill Simmons (The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to The Sports Guy)
She will leave me. It’s six AM. Breakfast for one. Eggs, sunny-side-up, like the morning outside; two-cheese English muffin, melting in the toaster oven; already humid outside; coffee will be a little bitter today, no matter how much sweetener gets put in it. The OJ will stay in the fridge – my stomach can do without the citric acid bombardment this morning. She will pack her things and leave me. Coffee brews. Radio station plays then breaks from classical music, telling me what's already evident about the weather. She will complain that she cannot get along with me. Eggs pop and sizzle as the news comes on.

This was America's new cable-wired, online nationalism, honey-combed lives intersecting during collective agony, the knee-pad titillation of Oval Office sex, the rubbernecking of celebrity violence. Until the Women's World Cup, the two biggest sports-related stories of the 1990s were the murder trial of O.J. Simpson and the knee-whacking shatter of figure skating's porcelain myth. Fans cheer for professional city teams and alma maters, but there is no grand, cumulative rooting in the United States except for the disposable novelty of the Olympics. With the rare exception of the Super Bowl is background noise, commercials interrupted by a flabby game, the Coca-Cola bears more engaging than the Chicago Bears.

The reason why Christian preaching is not accepted is not wholly or even principally because it is not understood. It is also because it is not liked. In most cases it is not that Christianity has been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and not tried.
Harold O.J. Brown (The Protest of a Troubled Protestant)
Christian faith must be personal in the sense that each person individually understands the historic faith and personally commits himself to it, but not in the sense that he decides what it should be.
Harold O.J. Brown (The Protest of a Troubled Protestant)
If we want our worship, or attempts at worship, to mean anything, we have to strive to conform it to the nature and will of God, and not to the mood or taste of the [current] century.
Harold O.J. Brown (The Protest of a Troubled Protestant)
When the world stops booing the church and begins to applaud it, its enthusiasm ought to arouse the Christian's suspicion.

OJ, milk, butter, eggs, half a roll of country sausage, a cantaloupe, Kroger's whole-grain bread, a can of French Market chicory coffee, some blackberry preserves- just the right makings of a good Southern breakfast for just my kind of man. No matter that breakfast has always been my favorite meal and that this would be another major test of my willpower. 'Bout the time I'd started frying a big patty of sausage for him, I noticed a few red potatoes in a basket, peeled and cut one up, and tossed the cubes in the same large cast-iron skillet for hashed browns. At first I'd thought of doing soft-scrambled eggs for us both, but while I was beating four eggs with a little milk as quietly as possible, I remembered seeing a package of Jack cheese in the door of the fridge, as well as a couple of jalapeños on the windowsill, and suddenly decided to make my guy a spicy cheese omelette to really impress him.

Essentially, there are far better foods to consume if you are looking for anti-oxidant properties. Fruits, OJ, root vegetables, eggs, dark chocolate, coconut oil, liver, shellfish, and coffee are all great choices.

Fundamentals of Esperanto The grammatical rules of this language can be learned in one sitting. Nouns have no gender & end in -o; the plural terminates in -oj & the accusative, -on Amiko, friend; amikoj, friends; amikon & amikojn, accusative friend & friends. Ma amiko is my friend. A new book appears in Esperanto every week. Radio stations in Europe, the United States, China, Russia & Brazil broadcast in Esperanto, as does Vatican Radio. In 1959, UNESCO declared the International Federation of Esperanto Speakers to be in accord with its mission & granted this body consultative status. The youth branch of the International Federation of Esperanto Speakers, UTA, has offices in 80 different countries & organizes social events where young people curious about the movement may dance to recordings by Esperanto artists, enjoy complimentary soft drinks & take home Esperanto versions of major literary works including the Old Testament & A Midsummer Night’s Dream. William Shatner’s first feature-length vehicle was a horror film shot entirely in Esperanto. Esperanto is among the languages currently sailing into deep space on board the Voyager spacecraft. - Esperanto is an artificial language constructed in 1887 by L. L. Zamenhof, a polish oculist. following a somewhat difficult period in my life. It was twilight & snowing on the railway platform just outside Warsaw where I had missed my connection. A man in a crumpled track suit & dark glasses pushed a cart piled high with ripped & weathered volumes— sex manuals, detective stories, yellowing musical scores & outdated physics textbooks, old copies of Life, new smut, an atlas translated, a grammar, The Mirror, Soviet-bloc comics, a guide to the rivers & mountains, thesauri, inscrutable musical scores & mimeographed physics books, defective stories, obsolete sex manuals— one of which caught my notice (Dr. Esperanto since I had time, I traded my used Leaves of Grass for a copy. I’m afraid I will never be lonely enough. There’s a man from Quebec in my head, a friend to the purple martins. Purple martins are the Cadillac of swallows. All purple martins are dying or dead. Brainscans of grown purple martins suggest these creatures feel the same levels of doubt & bliss as an eight-year-old girl in captivity. While driving home from the brewery one night this man from Quebec heard a radio program about purple martins & the next day he set out to build them a house in his own back yard. I’ve never built anything, let alone a house, not to mention a home for somebody else. Never put in aluminum floors to smooth over the waiting. Never piped sugar water through colored tubes to each empty nest lined with newspaper shredded with strong, tired hands. Never dismantled the entire affair & put it back together again. Still no swallows. I never installed the big light that stays on through the night to keep owls away. Never installed lesser lights, never rested on Sunday with a beer on the deck surveying what I had done & what yet remained to be done, listening to Styx while the neighbor kids ran through my sprinklers. I have never collapsed in abandon. Never prayed. But enough about the purple martins. Every line of the work is a first & a last line & this is the spring of its action. Of course, there’s a journey & inside that journey, an implicit voyage through the underworld. There’s a bridge made of boats; a carp stuffed with flowers; a comic dispute among sweetmeat vendors; a digression on shadows; That’s how we finally learn who the hero was all along. Weary & old, he sits on a rock & watches his friends fly by one by one out of the song, then turns back to the journey they all began long ago, keeping the river to his right.

It’s always a party. At six a.m., he bounds out of bed, juggles eggs, whips OJ, makes pancakes shaped like Mickey Mouse or the alphabet. He sings, he dances. He leads the kids in jumping jacks. I roll over, hoping he’ll close the door behind him.” —Lucy, West Hempstead, NY

I have strong feelings on the subject of American youth and here’s one of them. I’m really bothered at the emphasis given by the media on sports in the schools. Far too many youngsters spend all their energies and time on the basketball courts, wanting to be a Michael Jordan. Or they throw their energies toward being a Reggie Jackson on the baseball diamond or an O.J. Simpson on the football field. They want to make a million dollars a year, not realizing how few who try make those kinds of salaries. These kids end up throwing their lives away. When the media doesn’t emphasize sports, it’s music. I often hear of groups – and many of them good – who pour out their hearts in a highly competitive career, not realizing that only one group in 10,000 is going to make it big. Rather than putting all their time and energy into sports or music, these kids – these bright, talented young people – should be spending their time with books and self-improvement, ensuring they’ll have a career when they’re adults. I fault the media for perpetuating these grandiose dreams.

Sometimes it seems like he just wants to punish someone, anyone, for a long list of grievances that he has never made clear, which you can never ask about because he keeps his emotions so guarded that any question would be interpreted as assault. I wonder if dragging us to this village and the nearby town wear he spent his childhood is a way of sinking us all into his own personal hell so that we can see how this strange combination of poverty and opportunity, these broken and muddy roads, these crumbling houses, these overburdened men and women walking slowly in these streets singing praise songs to keep themselves going, created the strange combination of love and anger and pride and fear that is my father. He always sat in the passenger seat while we drove around the village so he could fully view what he sometimes called a world of wasted opportunity. With OJ or my mother in the car, he pointed out all the things he would make right if only he had the power. With me now, he says nothing. Occasionally he turns to look at me with the same expression that occupies his face when he has to solve a problem at the office. I sink down in my seat and wish that my mother had come.

People should know when they are conquered, OJ used to say when he would pin me to the floor and tickle me until I couldn't tell whether I was laughing or crying. There is nothing you can do, give it up, it's easier that way, OJ would say. You can't win, so just let go, he said once when I said I wanted to punch my father in the face,

OJ says you only feel your skin at your best and worst moments so right now I can feel all of my skin, on my fingers, on my face, full of itch and fire.

OJ says our father lives somewhere between the self-satisfaction that his success has made us soft and disgust that we are unacquainted with the brutal intensity of a world that he has effectively tamed for us.

Kardashian’s divorce from Kristen pained him, especially because she left him for Bruce Jenner, the former Olympic decathlon champion. Jenner and Kristen later married, and at the time of the murders they were starring in a frequently played infomercial for a thigh-exercising device. According to a close associate of Kardashian’s, “It bothered him that she was on TV all the time with the Thighmaster. This case was his way to step over them. This was better than infomercials.
