O.J. Trial 10th Anniversary
Dahlia Lithwick notes that June 12th will mark the 10 year anniversary [!] of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. She tries to explain why the trial so captured the public imagination in a way that has been unmatched since, despite more famous and more brutal crimes. She ultimately uses the “perfect storm” crutch. I don’t have a better explanation but that one’s particularly unsatisfying.
