O.J. TRIAL GETS TOO MUCH COVERAGE

I am definitely not opposed to justice, and although I have considered some of the ramifications associated with the O.J. trial (as both racial rights and the move for stronger domestic-violence punishments seem to clash), a question still lingers in my mind. Should it require a disaster of the magnitude of the Oklahoma City bombing to shift our focus from the skirmishes of high-paid lawyers to the personal battles fought by every one of us?

Apparently the answer to that question is still a resounding yes. A somewhat generous portion of Thursday's 9 p.m. news was devoted to the important events transpiring at the O.J. Simpson trial, and I was informed that Wednesday's trial proceedings had actually been put on hold so that judge Ito could hold interviews with the members of the jury. Thank heavens we didn't miss any of it!J. Gardner Wheeler
