Who's Crazier? OJ Or His Publisher?

Everyone thinks that OJ is deranged for thinking anybody would want to hear him hypothesize about the murders of Nicole and Ron in an interview and a book. But I think the real crazy person is the woman whose idea this was, Judith Regan, the Vassar-educated publisher you might enjoy reading about in her Wikipedia profile. It'll take you to all kinds of stories about her.

One paragraph I especially liked was this one:

According to The Daily Telegraph in London, she is "the enfant terrible of American publishing," with some critics callling her the "angriest woman in the media." Vanity Fair magazine called her a "foul-mouthed tyrant."  A former friend described her as "the highest functioning deranged person I've ever known."

High praise, indeed. One wonders how Rosie O'Donnell never picked up the pen.

I wondered about the publisher. That's the first thing I thought of when I heard of this fiasco.  "Who'd publish it??"  Now I know.  Interesting descriptions.

It takes all kinds.  She has to be sick to try to cash on a sick subject such as those murders.....and OJ's brain must be fried from all that Florida sun.....Sandi

It's all about making money, right? Someone would have bought those books. They got a ton of free publicity, too!
