O.J. Simpson was just sentenced to fifteen years in prison for his role in the botched armed robbery that was an attempt to retrieve what he claims was his own memorabilia.  The first reports I heard were 18 years, then I heard at least six years, now the headline on CNN says 15.  And you know what?  No one particularly cares.

It’s almost kind of sad to see this former NFL great, now stooped at 61 years old, sent off to prison and relegated to our apathy.  But then you realize that he kind of murdered two people by cutting their throats so viciously they were practically decapitated, and hey, maybe the last 13 years of playing golf were a gift he didn’t really deserve.
