oj simpson cashes in on murder of his wife and mother of his children…

By now you’ve probably heard about OJ Simpson’s upcoming book and Fox TV special, If I Did It, where he details how he would’ve killed his wife Nicole, if he had killed her. (insert projectile vomiting, screaming, pulling out of own hair, or any other means of expressing disgust and distress). Lucinda Marshall, at the Women in Media & News blog posts all the gory details, and states, “three women are murdered every day at the hands of their intimate partners. It is unconscionable to think that Simpson, ReganBooks, HarperCollins Publishers, and FOX would promote a how-to guide for killing your wife.” For some supremely depressing (but, I think, important to know) stats on sexual and physical violence against women in Canada, go here.

Interestingly, OJ’s publisher at Regan Books has refused to disclose whether or not he’ll make any money off of this book. I feel like that means he’s definitely getting the big bucks.
