The Goldman's Sell Out

Simpson Book to Benefit Foundation
Associated Press Tuesday, August 14, 2007; C03
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13 -- A literary agent for the family of stabbing victim Ronald Goldman has made a deal to repackage and publish O.J. Simpson's canceled "If I Did It" book about the slayings of Goldman and Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, a spokesman for the agent said Monday.
Details of the agreement, including the name of the New York publishing house, will be released Tuesday, said Michael Wright, a spokesman for Los Angeles-based literary agent Sharlene Martin of Martin Literary Management.
"The family and publisher have pledged to leave Simpson's manuscript entirely intact, but they will also add key commentary," Wright said in a prepared statement. "The Goldmans, the publisher and Sharlene Martin will all contribute portions of sales proceeds to the Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice."

So, I guess all that talk about 'justice' concerning their son's murder by O.J. ultimately came down to money. This was supposed to be about keeping Simpson broke, but it has now morphed into keeping the Goldman Foundation rich.
And are we really surprised?
