But then, I think that it was partly her fault as well. If she wanted something done, such as the tile between the door in the kitchen, and he didn't do it, she should have done it herself.

My very favorite part was when he displayed the "scratches" on his stomach. For pete's sake, man, they're STRETCH MARKS! I laughed out loud at that, for sure.

He seemed very narcissistic and controlling to me too. He definitely thinks he's more powerfull than he really is. I don't call producing Micheal Jackson specials to be the top of the entertainment industry. Micheal Jackson has been a joke for quite a while now. If anything, he was in control of the has been circuit.
I don't think that David Guest is Homosexual though. I think he's Asexual. Gay people act normal. This guy is sexless and strange.

I couldn't believe that a story like that hadn't received huge national attention. Why hadn't we ever heard about this guy before? I also really wanted to sucker-punch those cops -- fuckers couldn't even be bothered to investigate because the victims were society's throwaways.

queasy, I think that's exactly the reason why this didn't recieve national attention............these victims were people that the the media didn't think the country would care about because they were considered "throwaways". You can bet that if this had happened to upper middle class ladies then every news media outlet would have covered it into the ground.
I felt nothing but rage towards the "dungeon master" as he was referred to. I don't understand how a person can become so disconected from reality. Sometimes I can work up sympathy even for people who do terrible thing. This wasn't one of those times. I think he's evil.......and I don't use the word lightly.
I also felt a little anger toward the police. It sounded like they were blaming the victim who actually did come foward because she "didn't give them enough to go on." That's just the way I took it. I think she did a pretty good job. She came foward. She told the truth. She was only a year off on the year of the car. She had an excelent description of the man who held her captive. She called back to check up on the case. What more could she have done? It didn't seem like the police cared to begin with. She wasn't a priority. Then to add salt on the wound, an asshole cop comes on TV and makes it sound like it was all her fault the guy wasn't cought sooner because she didn't have enough information.

That was my biggest (but not only) criticism about how the police handled that. I think she told them the year model was '74, but it was really a '75. The police, at minimum, should have known that cars purchased in one year can actually be next year's model and searched that year as well.
She was only a year off on the year of the car.

Today's Katie Couric has nabbed what NBC is calling an "exclusive" interview with O.J. Simpson for tonight's Dateline NBC. That's odd, because I could have sworn Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren just scored her own O.J. sit-down, during which the Naked Gun star teased his straight-to-DVD prank show, Juiced. "It's a takeoff on something called Punk'd," he said. "It's me... 'juicing' people." Both interviews are timed to the 10th anniversary of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman's juicing.

The thing that got to me most was how he said that he has never had even one discussion with his children about the murders, EVER. He backed t his up by saying that the psychologists and psychiatrists know best how to handle it, so since they never talked to him about it, he never addressed the subject with them either. But... they were in the house when their mother and her friend were brutally murdered, their father was accused and tried for the crime and it's been in the media from day 1 until now, 10 years later. And they've never talked about it as a family, not even once? I can't even fathom that! I admit I've had fleeting thoughts over the years wondering if one or both children woke up, saw/heard something and went back to bed to hide. Then blocked it out because they were so young. Or maybe they are scared of him and scared to even consider it so they never wanted to bring it up to him. Considering they spend time with him and with Nicole's family too, the stress level must be unbelievable. I have heard the phrase "ignoring the elephant in the room" but this takes that to a new, bizarre level. Thoughts?
The way he talked about Nicole (trying to publically push blame for their problems on her, after her death, etc.) and the Goldmans was just disgusting. He was pissed off saying straight out he would never pay them a dime unless he was forced, and if that means he can't work then he won't work in order to get out of it. He angrily badmouthed them and yelled about how he can't make it any clearer.
If he was hoping that this would somehow invite public sympathy he's even more delusional than I thought, because the whole thing came off really bad.

If other people were not in the room I would have feared for Katie Couric's safety.

What pisses me off is like the world turns the other way while this guy lives it up, doesn't work, doesn't pay what the court ordered him to pay, dates hot women (still!) and just does what ever the fuck he wants.
A few years ago there was a magazine article in Glamour, Cosmo or Marie Claire (one of those chick mags) about OJ's new girlfriend. It was written with interviews by her parents and friends. First of all the girl was the spitting image of Nicole. Also, it seemed very obvious that she was being beaten. Friends were terrified. She kept trying to break up with him and he wouldn't let her. Once she showed up with a black eye and told her mother to tell no one that she was there.
OJ is one scary dude. Why interview him? It's not going to serve any purpose but show the world again and again what a deranged lunatic he is.

While I believe some parents are a cause of this type of woman, I wouldn’t lay it all at their feet. I would bet that the very large majority of these women have a history of childhood abuse whether it’s sexual, physical or emotional. If it was the parent doing the abuse then yeah, it’s their fault, but if not you can only blame the abuser. There are also the type of women who think they will be the one who can ‘fix him.’
I have to say that responsibility for raising women unwilling to be in relationships such as this falls equally on the shoulders of parents of boys and girls. Female children have to be shown and told in words and actions that they are deserving of more than whatever scraps the first pimply fifteen year old misogynist that cops a feel playing seven minutes in heaven throws at her and male children have to be taught as well to respect women and how to not be a budding misogynist.
It wouldn’t matter anyway, the problem was the sloppy police work, more than the prosecution, at least that has always been my understanding.
I realize there's a double jeopardy thing (which is complete shit)
Seems to work for my ex-husband and child support.
He was pissed off saying straight out he would never pay them a dime unless he was forced, and if that means he can't work then he won't work in order to get out of it.

I'm pretty sure I was watching a rerun today titled "Waiting For Ricky". Now, this kid ran away, barely talked to his family or anything and got sullen about anything he was interviewed about. Normal teenage behavior right? NO. My gawd, this kid was such a freakin' brat, and he had the nerve to try to be "punk" with Wierd Al Yankovich a la Coolio inspired rubber band twists. Then, after his extended leave from his family in which he barely talked to them (though they tried to stay in touch constantly), he came home for Christmas. Just. To. Get. Presents. Then he left, just grabbed his bag o' stuff and left. Tool. I know he was reformed by the end, but geez he just made me wanna slap some sense into him the whole show.

Did any one see the 2nd hour of DL it had a story about The Son of Sam murders. It was really scary and just the thought that other killers might be out there scared the bejesus out of me.

Tonight I'm flipping around the channels, and I land on Dateline for a second. The story tonight is about Aron Ralston, the guy that cut his own arm off to free himself when he was trapped by a boulder. Good God, I was absolutely transfixed throughout the entire episode.
I remember reading about this after it happened, but hearing him talk about it...it was just incredible.
He and Tom Brokaw went back to the canyon and went through what happened. I started crying when Aron broke down when talking about carving his own epitaph in the rocks.
Also, and I didn't know this, he had a video camera with him and during the ordeal he taped messages to his family. He asked Dateline not to show the video because it upset his family and friends to see it, but they did play the audio.
I thought this guy's courage was very impressive when I'd read about what he had done, but listening to him talk about it, and what an appreciation he has for the second chance he's been given, I'm even more impressed with him.
Anyone else see this?

I was really impressed at his knowledge of the human body, to know exactly which bones to break in order to be able to cut through the rest of the arm. When they were describing cutting through tendons and everything, oh lord that was terrible. I felt so bad for the guy. He does really seem to have a new appreciation for everything he has learned form his experience.
I was amazed that he lost 40 freaking pounds in 6 days time! Then having to hike in the hot sun with no food or water, bleeding profusely. My god. I thought it was cool what he did with his arm afterwards, kind of a closure on it. Go Aron!

A very moving and inspirational story. I'm glad I watched.
