When people retire they usually hope to travel or spend more time in their pajamas, but Oprah's aspirations are not like those of us plebs. At the annual Cable Show in Chicago, she said, "I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me. And I am going to make that happen people. I don't just want the interview ... I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson." Oprah has also said she's determined to star on Broadway, so the stage is set for an utterly tasteless If I Did It musical.

Is there a kind of vague public consensus on whether Simpson is guilty or not?

Where I am (not the US) there's kind of this generalisation that the American public is divided on this on racial lines - white people think he did it, black people think he didn't (so I guess everyone else doesn't have an opinion at all then?). But I kind of doubt whether it's as simplistic as all that, and this Winfrey quote seems to affirm this.

Also, I liked Oprah Winfrey in her vanity project movie adaption of 'Beloved'. So there.
