LOS ANGELES -- A man who lived near Nicole Brown Simpson told jurors yesterday how, shortly before midnight June 12, Mrs. Simpson's nervous, purposeful pet Akita dog pulled him toward its owner's condominium, stopped in front and peered into the yard.HTC When the neighbor looked for himself, he said, he saw Mrs. Simpson prostrate and "full of blood.""I turned to my wife and said there was a dead person there," the witness, Sukru Boztepe, told Marcia Clark, the chief prosecutor in the case.

Disney's newest feature, "The Lion King," features a frightening depiction of a stampede. But this could be only the second-scariest one of the summer.No. 1 has to be the rampaging of the experts toward the cameras and the keyboards in the wake of the O. J. Simpson case. Sort of a running of the bull.It's not enough, apparently, that two people were murdered, that two young children lost their mother, that a well-known person is accused of the crime, that his surrender to authorities was preceded by a bizarre freeway parade carried live on television.

Baltimore police said Friday they have arrested a man sought in connection with the deaths of two youths in as many days last week — a violent sequence that had investigators scrambling to identify a suspect based only on vague witness descriptions. The violence began with the fatal shooting of 15-year-old Oscar Torres during a robbery early May 26. That led police to look for a stolen white Ford Fusion — and a suspect. The next day, police say, 20-year-old Kevin Simpson was driving that car when he slammed into a minivan as he fled police, killing a 12-year-old girl.

"Law & Order" is usually the TV show known for its "ripped from the headlines" plots, but Sunday's episode of "The Simpsons" seems to have been inspired by a recent legal case involving the Baltimore Museum of Art . In the episode, Lisa's guinea pig ruins the family's existing living room artwork, forcing Marge to find a replacement at a neighborhood yard sale. But brainy Lisa later discovers that the painting might be worth $100,000, causing friction with the work's original owners.

The force is strong with these ones. The Baltimore Zoo has announced Friday the winners of a contest to name its two lion cubs. With more than 20,000 votes, the cubs will now be known as Luke and Leia -- after the heroes of the first three "Star Wars" movies -- beating out suggestions from "The Simpsons" and Shakespeare. The 10-week-old cubs, who lost their mother when she died from labor complications, are reported to be in good health. The zoo's website reports: "They are both healthy and enjoy playing with one another.

Whether you agree or disagree with the verdict in the Zimmerman trial, a jury has spoken unanimously: There was not enough evidence to convict Mr. Zimmerman beyond a reasonable doubt ("Martin verdict fires debate," July 15). The family of Trayvon Martin has the option of bringing a civil suit similar to the one brought against O.J. Simpson - but with the difference that the defendant George Zimmerman has no deep pockets. The Department of Justice could also bring federal civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman.

Sen. Ben Cardin accurately described the danger of the sequester's "meat-ax approach" to debt reduction and the fatigue of the American people with budget showdowns that do little more than kick the can down the road. ("No to sequestration," Feb. 20). But in the final analysis, Senator Cardin's article is more of the same - one politician's vision, among many others, of what a fair and comprehensive deficit reduction plan should be. What is missing is a commitment to a specific plan of revenue increases and spending cuts.

The Bowie State University student charged with fatally slashing her randomly assigned roommate in their shared suite last year was acquitted Thursday of every charge against her, as jurors apparently believed she was acting to protect herself in a sprawling melee. After about 21/2 hours of deliberation, jurors found Alexis Simpson, 20, not guilty of first-degree murder and a host of lesser charges in the September 2011 slaying of 18-year-old Dominique Frazier. They rejected even the idea that Simpson acted in a grossly negligent way in the death.

If the Bowles-Simpson commission deficit reduction plan is dead, somebody evidently forgot to tell Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson. Their proposal to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over the next decade fell one vote short of the majority needed to force congressional action, and President Barack Obama, though saying nice things about the effort, didn't pick up the plan and sell it to the American people. But now, nearly two years later and on the eve of a presidential election, the framework Messrs.
