After This, a Moratorium on Fred Goldman-Related News, Too
Posted by: Keir Graff

I’ve been observing an unofficial moratorium on O.J. Simpson-related news, but in today’s Washington Post (“Throwing the Book at O.J. Simpson“), Neely Tucker uses the events surrounding the publication of If I Did It as a lens through which to examine Fred Goldman and his single-minded focus on getting back at the man he believes killed his son–and I read to the end.

It is one thing, of course, to lose your child to a crime of violence. It is another to see the accused murderer parading around South Florida at one golf course or another, doing everything possible to avoid paying court-ordered judgments against him.

Then again, it is also true that bitterness and obsession eat at the heart. They are acidic. They destroy what they touch.

    I for one am sick of hearing from Fred Goldman and Kim. Both are interested in nothing more than the money and have become the pathetic one’s in this case. Ron was there for one reason and it wasn’t to protect Nicole…let’s be honest! It is terrible what happened to both, I don’t deny that, but lets not pretend to make Ron into a saint.

    As far as I am concerned, Goldman has sunk to the lowest levels of greed….money… in exchange for his sons death…enjoy the Blood Money Fred!

    I thought I was the only person in the world sick of hearing from the Goldmans about OJ . I just e-mailed o’reily at Fox news expressing how fed-up I was hearing from Fred Goldman and the news coverage of Fred Goldman’s hatefullness. I am truly sick of hearing from the Goldmans
