Embarrassed to admit I got 15/16 -- I put UCLA instead of USC. The murder trial was a really big deal at the time and I remembered way too many details.... Interesting quiz.

I didn't watch one second of it, didn't even have a TV at the time and this garbage information is still in my head. Why?

It was pretty ubiquitous. I remember there being a full-page story about the trial in our school yearbooks my junior year, and writing "Just Say NO.J." in Sharpie in everyone's books in protest. Even if you tried to actively avoid it it was all but impossible.

just goes to show what an enormous cultural event this was, that simply by virtue of being *one* of OJ's friends and less noteworthy legal advisors, Robert Kardashian became famous enough that when his daughter's sex tape got on the Internet it stirred up enough interest to launch an international business empire.

If it wasn't for OJ, the Kardashians would not have been famous. It's crazy how everything affects everything.

With Alan Dershowitz now part of Trump's legal team I was surprised not to see his name appear on the quiz. After advising the Dream Team he wrote a book, Reasonable Doubts, in which he said, "The Simpson case will not be remembered in the next century. It will not rank as one of the trials of the century..." He may be right. I had to think long and hard to brush the cobwebs from the answers and some I just couldn't remember. I doubt if people in the next generation - who didn't actually watch the television coverage of the trial or the Bronco on the freeway - will care. (With the exception of the victims' families, of course.)

Well, if you compare it to people's knowledge of most trials (which is probably zero or just above zero), I think this trial still ranks higher than any other civilian trial. For how many other trials can anyone name the judge, lead prosecutor, and lead defense attorney 25 years later? None that I can think of. There isn't much historical or educational value in the trial, but it was certainly the most memorable I can recall in my lifetime.

I always knew them as "The Los Angeles Riots" . . . of course in response to abuse of Rodney King . . . when did they "rebrand" to "Rodney King Riots"?

I've always heard them called the Rodney King Riots. It probably just depends where you first heard it.

Of course he did. There hasn't been a more open-and-shut case of obvious guilt in my lifetime other than in the impeachment of Donald Trump. And in both cases a large chunk of the country is in denial because of their personal biases, but everyone with sense knows that he did it.
