THE ONLY topic of conversation that anyone will pay attention to is the O.J. Simpson trial. Therefore, it is important that when you meet people you are prepared to say something intelligent to prove that you understand what's going on.Here are a few one-liners you can drop at a dinner or party:I haven't watched the trial, but I read the book.I was once on a sequestered jury for a month, and I wound up taking Prozac.It doesn't matter if O.J. did it or not -- he should be punished for screwing up our day.The only thing I know about the trial is that you can't have enough DNA to make the prosecution happy.

Fox Broadcasting Co. has decided against running its TV movie on O. J. Simpson before he stands trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ronald Goldman.Sources close to the network said Fox Inc. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch made the decision to delay the broadcast based on concern that it could make it difficult for Mr. Simpson to get a fair trial.Fox had set the TV movie to kick off its new Tuesday night movie slate on Sept. 13, one week before Mr. Simpson is scheduled to stand trial on charges of first-degree murder.

Simpson:"For all the media's fawning over Simpson's 'dream team' of defense lawyers, and for all the public hostility toward Clark, she is winning. The public reception accorded Clark might well serve as a case study of what happens when a woman becomes dramatically visible in a job traditionally associated with men. On the one hand, she has been patronized: [Defense Attorney Robert]

LOS ANGELES -- A judge cleared the way for DNA testing of blood samples today in the O.J. Simpson murder case amid signs the defense will wage a molecule-by-molecule battle over evidence.At an emergency hearing yesterday, Judge Lance Ito affirmed his decision that defense experts could remove 10 percent of each of the samples before the prosecution's testing began this morning. Officials at the laboratory had wanted their own technicians to do the job.The defense, meanwhile, objected to Judge Ito's requirement that they use the lab's equipment to cut their samples, which were to be stored at the lab until Judge Ito decides if they can conduct their own tests.

FROM Shaun D. Mullen, reporting for Knight-Ridder Newspapers:"It started as a modest attempt at milking the rich mother lode of weirdness called the O.J. Simpson trial. Now 'O.J. Law: The Continuing Saga,' is the toast of L.A."The staged radio play, in which the cast plays characters from the trial, was booked into The Complex theater on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood after New Year's for a month. But the run has been extended several times, and 'O.J. Law' has been constantly rewritten to keep up with the latest in-court bizarreness.
