I've developed more of a faith in justice, but I'm still a cynic when it comes to the legal system in California:
Hee, hee, hee
O.J.'s "Rolex" is not a Rolex.
It was made in China.
I hope he gets lead poisoning, or it turns his wrist green.
All of this O.J. stuff has given me a renewed faith in universe; the man got away with butchering his ex wife and a complete stranger in a fit of rage. Now it is possible he might spend the rest of his life in a Nevada prison over stolen football jerseys.
That thrilled me Saturday morning, but this kept me talking:
According to Richard Roberts, son of Oral Roberts and ORU president, this all boils down to money.
Well, of course it does.
It cost $29,000 to send his daughter and friends to Florida for her "senior trip". (listed in financial records as a "evangelical trip of the President"-- Evangelicals Gone Wild???).
This totally makes sense. I bet Mr. Roberts and his family walked the beaches looking for poor intoxicated college and high school students, hoping to spread the word and change their lives.
Some concern was mentioned about Mrs. Roberts $800/ monthly cell phone bills.
I totally get this as well. Mrs. Roberts has to make her calls. What I don't get is why is she sending "hundreds of text messages . . . between 1 a.m (and) 3 a.m.".
Text messaging requires effort. Personally, I don't understand why anyone does it. Leave a voicemail, for crying out loud.
More so, I'm concerned about the texts, which were going to "underage males who had been provided phones at university expense".
Karen was concerned about the "$39,000 at one Chico's clothing store in less than a year". According to Karen, she hasn't seen $1,000 worth of anything worth buying in Chico's in the last year, much less $39,000. Has she ever heard of Talbot's? Nordstrom's perhaps? She's plunking down a lot of cash; why not Neiman's or Sak's? After all, "as long as (she) wear(s) it once on TV, (she) can charge it off".
It was the televangelist Oral Roberts back in the late eighties who told the viewers of his show that if he didn't raise eight million dollars for the university, God would "take him home". Since his fundraising endeavors were successful, God didn't "take him home". Instead, he allowed him to semi retire in the great state of California.
I wonder what donors think of their givings now . . .
