Though O. J. Simpson's preliminary hearing continues to inch along, it really ended yesterday morning.That's when Judge Kathleen Kennedy-Powell dashed whatever (slim) hopes the defense had that Simpson would not have to face trial for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.The judge ruled that the evidence, including a bloody glove, that police gathered without a search warrant at the Simpson home could be used against him.That glove, which appears to be the mate of the one found at the murder scene, is very bad news for the defense.

Torn by an obligation to make books available to the public and a disgust with profiteering off two vicious murders, bookstores across the country are split on whether to carry the new O.J. Simpson book, If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer. At the Ivy Bookshop in Baltimore, the matter was put to a staff vote. By a margin of 7-6, the staff opted to carry the book. But owner Darielle Linehan decided she didn't want to make any money off the sale of the book, which was published yesterday.

LOS ANGELES -- In the beginning, she didn't even recognize him, that's how unworldly she was. "That's O. J. Simpson!" her boss at the nightclub exclaimed. She'd never heard of the guy.Later, friends and relatives would recount the episode and shake their heads. It wasn't just the naivete. By the time she married him seven years later at the age of 25, it seemed there had never been a time when the larger-than-life celebrity had not dominated her existence.Now, the man who so shaped the life of Nicole Brown Simpson has come to dominate the story of her death as well.

Facing mutiny by its affiliate stations and a storm of public criticism, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. yesterday canceled a "sweeps" television special and a book in which O.J. Simpson was to describe how he would have killed former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. The highly unusual move of canceling both a heavily promoted book and a two-night primetime program on the eve of their appearance suggests that there are still lines that the public doesn't want crossed - despite a conventional wisdom that says tabloid and reality TV have hopelessly debased popular culture in recent years.

Los Angeles--Until Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were murdered, few people outside the chic boutiques of Rodeo Drive, Starbuck's in Brentwood and some charity circles of Beverly Hills had ever heard of Faye Resnick.Even afterward, as the O.J. Simpson case spun out a huge cast of characters, she remained in the peripheral world of the tabloids.But now, with a giant assist from Judge Lance Ito, who urged potential jurors to avoid Ms. Resnick's new book about Mrs. Simpson and beseeched television figures like Larry King and Connie Chung not to talk with her, Ms. Resnick has strutted onto center stage.

It was intended to be a lasting memorial to Nicole Brown Simpson, a non-profit organization committed to stamping out the domestic violence she allegedly suffered at the hands of her ex-husband and accused killer, O. J. Simpson.Unveiled last December at New York's posh Rainbow Room, the Nicole Brown Simpson Charitable Foundation quickly took in tens of thousands of dollars in private donations -- to be spent, her grieving family said, on a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about spousal abuse and fund the shelters that serve its victims.

"Bitch," by Elizabeth Wurtzel. Doubleday. 400 pages. $23.95.I take "Bitch" by Elizabeth Wurtzel to be a rebuttal of "The Rules": a shriek, protesting the hypocritical, no-saying, lady-like directives for snaring a man found in that bestseller by two triumphant housewives.Ms. Wurtzel's treatise presents an exhaustive and exhausting cast of "bitches" (in heat, of course), whose quests for power depend, largely, on beauty and sexual dynamism. The list is headed by the biblical seductress Delilah and proceeds as far as Princess Diana.

Do you really want to go back and relive the whole O.J. Simpson mess? That's the question you should ask yourself before sitting down tomorrow night for the start of the four-hour CBS miniseries, "American Tragedy," starring Ron Silver, Ving Rhames, Christopher Plummer and Bruno Kirby. Despite the pretentious title and taint of sleaze associated with treating such material in an entertainment format, "American Tragedy" is not without merit. It's just that once you dip your toe back in these waters and let yourself flow with the narrative tide, you end the viewing experience feeling like you really, really need a long, hot shower with lots of soap.

LOS ANGELES -- The police have put up green fencing along the sidewalk at the northwest corner of Bundy Drive and Dorothy Street to keep people from spilling out into traffic, and for the time being they've prohibited parking altogether on adjoining blocks. It doesn't discourage anyone.If anything, it only helps to make the house on the corner that much more special, to enhance the feeling among those who steadfastly come here that they have found their way to a shrine.Nicole Brown Simpson, who was murdered here alongside her friend, Ronald L. Goldman, has accomplished in death what she never did in life -- she has a niche in the psyche of Los Angeles.

Simpson's Brentwood estate, attention turned yesterday to the two young children who once lived there with him.Uncertainty over custody of the children continued, with their maternal grandparents appearing to waver in their willingness to turn them over to Mr. Simpson. The children were back with the Brown family in Dana Point, an hour's drive south of Mr. Simpson's home.Juditha Brown, mother of the slain Nicole Brown Simpson, said it was difficult to let go of her grandchildren when they were reunited with their father on Wednesday for the first time in more than a year.

All rise, or at least turn on your television sets: People of the State of California vs. Orenthal James Simpson will now come to order.Mr. Simpson's long-delayed trial on charges of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman is scheduled to begin today. But the case has been under way for months in the court of public opinion, that highly irregular place where rumors and outright falsehoods can carry as much weight as actual exhibits and testimony in a real courtroom.

On a typical day, the help line at the Howard County Domestic Violence Center rings about once every hour. The woman on the other end of the line -- it's invariably a woman -- asks for help. One call an hour, 24 a day, may not sound like much, but over a year it adds up to almost 9,000 calls, ranging from requests for counseling to urgent cries for help.Last week, however, after a jury of 10 women and two men acquitted O.J. Simpson in the murder of his ex-wife and a friend, the calls were quite different.
