Ten years on, it is difficult to find many who would argue that Simpson was innocent. But there are plenty who believe he should not have been convicted because the prosecution did not make a strong enough case. OJ Simpson is not Everybrother, ... Likewise, Nicole Simpson is not Everyvictim and Mark Fuhrman is not Everyracist ... Whatever the verdict, I don't think the OJ Simpson trial will have deep, profound or lasting resonance in American culture. It will not be transformative. It's a bad mini-series gone out of control.
Part of the magic of Martha's Vineyard is that we were, all of us, more free here than any place else, ... On the island, we did not worry about our personal security. We did not lock doors we left keys under the mat in the car, slept with windows wide open, absent the need to protect person or property from outside invaders.
