Summer is a difficult time for blogging, because everyone is home all the time. Although I’m a sociable, extroverted person, I need at least a little solitude to think and write, and I’m not getting that. Time to blog has been in even shorter supply the past few nights because we’ve been watching ESPN’s O.J. : Made in America, a ten-hour documentary about O.J. Simpson from childhood through to his most recent incarceration.
Although I know that ESPN is the ugly love-child of the old “Wide World of Sports” and MSNBC (in other words, sports with a hard Left spin), I remember enough of the events in real time to know that it was a factually honest documentary. Indeed, even its focus on race was appropriate, because that, of course, is what the trial ended up being about.
Since I did spend so much of my life recently watching about OJ, I figured I’d share with you some of the thoughts I had as I watched.
