Did you ever make an appointment to do something but then wondered if you made a mistake by doing so? Well, last night I went online and searched the various offers available to me here in Tucson for TV service. It seems that the best deal I can get is from Cox Cable. So I made an appointment to get the Economy Lineup installed this coming Monday morning between 8 and 10 o'clock. My cost is supposed to be just under $40 per month (hah... we'll see.)
I hope I won't regret this action.

This Day In History
On this day in 1994 Nicole Brown Simpson, famous football player O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife, and her friend Ron Goldman were brutally stabbed to death outside Nicole’s home in Brentwood, California, in what quickly became one of the most highly publicized trials of the century. With overwhelming evidence against him, including a prior record of domestic violence towards Brown, O.J. Simpson became the chief suspect.
The evidence against Simpson was extensive: His blood was found at the murder scene; blood, hair, and fibers from Brown and Goldman were found in Simpson’s car and at his home; one of his gloves was also found in Brown’s home, the other outside his own house; and bloody shoeprints found at the scene matched those of shoes owned by Simpson.
However, Simpson’s so-called “Dream Team” of defense lawyers, including Johnnie Cochran and F. Lee Bailey, claimed before a national television audience that Simpson had been framed by racist police officers such as Detective Mark Fuhrman. After deliberating for three hours, the jury acquitted Simpson. In a civil trial brought about by the families of the victims, Simpson was found responsible for causing Goldman’s death and committing battery against Brown in February 1997, and was ordered to pay a total of $33.5 million, little of which he has paid.
In 2007, Simpson ran into legal problems once again when he was arrested for breaking into a Las Vegas hotel room and taking sports memorabilia, which he claimed had been stolen from him, at gunpoint. On October 3, 2008, he was found guilty of 12 charges related to the incident, including armed robbery and kidnapping, and sentenced to 33 years in prison.
