OJ is Truly Stranger Than Fiction

Don't know if it was a rerun, but I just watched "Dr. Phil" talk with the Goldman's and the ghost writer for "If I Did It." Won't go on about OJ or the Goldman's. I was more interested in the ghost writer, and the apparent integrity he brought to the project despite his declaration to O.J., "I believe you did it then and still believe you did it." Yeah, he got good money for his efforts, but all believed he made O.J.'s words real and correctly framed a compelling though sickening read.

When I grow up, I want to be a ghost writer. I bet many spirits want their story told.

And you'd get all the royalties.

(I could have sworn I posted this yesterday, but it disappeared. Appropriately. Ghost comments?)

Hmm. Hadn't thought about that.

It was a dark and stormy night when Ignatious Arbuckle died. The thunder and lightning crackled, and he got scared. His heart rumble in sync with the thunder, and that's when he thought of the idea of an all boy's band, Insync. But he died before he could do anything about it, but the legend lives on in their music.

I met a ghost writer at a bar in Florida-- long story. She was making mega bucks! She wouldn't divulge who her clients were, but intimated that some were famous and others infamous.
