O.J. turned over fake Rolex to Goldman family

There are some names that keep popping up in the news so often the nausea seems to never end. Names like Paris Hilton, Anna Nicole Smith and O.J. Simpson (upper picture). Actually, Fred Goldman (lower picture) also ranks right up there with the rest.

Fred Goldman is the father of Ron Goldman who was murdered along with Nicole Brown Simpson. O.J. Simpson was accused of the murders but received a not guilty verdict after the trial.

In a later wrongful death trial, the Goldman family was awarded $33.5 million. $25 million as punitive damages for the slayings in addition to $8.5 million in compensatory damages.

Attorneys for Goldman recently seized a Rolex watch from Simpson thinking the timepiece would be worth about $22,000.

The watch turned out to be a fake with a value of about $125. It was returned because it had so little value it fell under an exemption in the judgment excluding jewelry worth less than $6,075.

Wonder how much money Goldman has spent so far in his unsuccessful attempts to get money from Simpson?

The more Goldman is obsessed with getting some of his multi-million-dollar judgement, the more O.J is determined to throw the ‘empty’ judgement back in Goldman’s face.

Somehow they deserve each other - the killer (who was acquitted in federal court but convicted in civil court) and the father who has devoted his life to revenge.

Obama does not wear a flag pin

Illinois Senator Barack Hussein Obama (pictured) will not wear the American flag pin.

“I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest," he said in the interview. "Instead, I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism."

As a candidate running for the presidency of the United States, I guess he had to come up with something to explain why he stopped wearing it right after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Thompson: boring audiences into complete silence

Late-comer Fred Thompson finally entered the presidential race.

Now, many are wondering why he bothered.

Twenty-four minutes after he began speaking in a small restaurant the other day, Fred Thompson brought his remarks to a close with a nod of his head and an expression of thanks to Iowans for allowing him to “give my thoughts about some things.”

Then he stood face to face with a silent audience.

“Can I have a round of applause?” Mr. Thompson said, drawing a rustle of clapping and some laughter.

Iowans saw a subdued, laconic candidate who spoke in a soft monotone, threw few elbows and displayed little drive to distinguish himself from his opponents.

Before it’s over, the entire county will wonder why Thompson didn’t just stay home.
