Cosmic Justice + Schadenfreude = Cosmifreude? Schadestice? Freudecosmischadenjust?

It’s generally poor form to revel in others’ distress (see: Hilton, Paris vis returns to jail), but I must admit to a small amount of glee upon hearing the news that O.J. Simpson’s company is declaring bankruptcy and may have to transfer publishing rights to his “If I Did It” to the Goldmans as they are his primary creditors. Ron Goldman is planning on releasing the book under the title Confessions of a Double Murderer if these events transpire.
It certainly doesn’t bring two murdered individuals back to life, but it definitely smacks of Morrissettian irony.

Good Taste Wins Out, For Once

I was extremely surprised to find out that Fox News was readying an interview with O.J. Simpson in advance of his “hypothetical” book’s release. I was even more surprised to find out that they not only backed off the interview but also canceled the book itself. I wouldn’t have pegged Fox to be the network out of all the money-grubbing disgustoid TV networks to pull a show for taste reasons. I mean, it’s Fox, for goodness’ sake!
Kudos go out to them, though, for listening to people and realizing that they had pushed the TV and book-reading audiences too flippin’ far.
