Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the famous OJ Simpson Bronco chase

Courtesy of Paul Mende (who started the website with me back in 1994 when we were one of the first thousand sites on the web. The whole freaking web.) I managed to dig up these old pics and docs: me with the "People vs. Simpson" files, and Judge Ito's letter of thanks because, bizarrely enough, the Steps did actually entertain the OJ Simpson jury whilst they were sequestered. It was a very bizarre day marked by its notable complete lack of security.  We could have walked in there with all kinds of newspapers and opinions and tape recorders and cameras and no one checked ahead of time.  Weird for the high-profile  "Trial of the Century." Admittedly, the pictures are technically from NINETEEN years ago, as the trial was a year later.  I have seldom seen a more beaten down group of people than the OJ jury.

An actual statue in the Love Field airport in Dallas

I guess everything IS bigger in Texas.
