AP Headline of the Day

O.J. Simpson's Book and TV Specials Are Canceled

See? Sometimes common sense and decency prevail. They just need a little push from, you know, several days of national outrage.

I've been trying to figure this out myself: can you really attribute the retraction to common sense and/or decency when it took such a bludgeoning of public outrage make them do it? I'm inclined to think their reasons for pulling it are the same as their reasons for wanting to publish it in the first place: whatever makes the most business sense. In this case, the public outcry was (thankfully) enough to jeopardize some other aspect of the business.

Oh, I completely agree.

Someone had to approve the book deal initially, and of course the TV show had already been fully produced, so I don't see any other explanation.
