OJ Simpson goes on line with Web Q&A

'Um, so how long does a blonde take to bleed to death?'

Acquitted murder suspect of the century OJ Simpson will appear on a series of US television programmes next week, including NBC's Today show and ABC's The View, to tout a new Web site created for him to take questions from the public, called AskOJ.com.

The site is the tasteless brainchild of a company calling itself Entertainment Network, which will enable Netizens to question Simpson live. Users will be charged $9.95 to register on the site, according to Simpson publicist Brian Barry. Site members will also be able to purchase what he described as "OJ memorabilia". Barry did not say whether the famous bloody glove would be included.

The Tampa, Florida-based Entertainment Network "creates voyeuristic Web sites", Barry said. Among its previous Web sites are Voyeurdorm.com and Dudedorm.com.

"OJ will be donating all his potential earnings from the Web site to charity," Barry gushed.

It is a pity that he won't be able to apply the money to his never-ending search for his late wife Nicole's "true killer", but a bad turn in civil court, which found him resopnsible for her death to the tune of a $33.5 million judgment, continues to frustrate this eminently noble quest. ®
