quasi in rem

Don't read until after you have had your lunch....:

This is quite possibly the sickest thing I have read in quite some time:

"Apparently taking a break from his continuing search for the real killers, O.J. Simpson is hoping to mark the 10th anniversary of wife Nicole's savage murder June 12 - along with the fatal knifing of unlucky waiter Ron Goldman - by cashing in big-time.

Star Magazine reports that Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, has been shopping his client around for paid interviews.

'It will be expensive,' the mag quotes Galanter. 'TV rights are going for $100,000. For print rights, between $20,000 and $25,000.'

Nothing if not classy, Galanter adds that O.J. might even be willing to do a photo shoot at the Brentwood crime scene and at Nicole's grave site - if the price is right.

'It would have to be a multimillion-type deal,' Galanter says. A grave site photo would be 'worth $500,000 ... Our preference is a standard interview ... but it's just money.'"

The saddest thing about this story is that right now proposals are probably being drafted. And in some tabloid newsroom somewhere in this country the phrase:"I bet we could get him to do it for $50K" is being said.
