Nordberg: All right, listen up everyone! I want you to calmly file towards the exits. That's it, that's it! Nobody runs, just walk. Single file. That's it. Now if we just stay calm, no one's gonna be harmed by the huge bomb that's gonna explode any minute.

After 13 years of running free, the law could never just back off this fallen hero. Pro Football Hall of Famer Orenthal James Simpson was sentenced today for at least 15 years after choosing the wrong city and state to lead an armed robbery in a hotel room confrontation. He was merely trying to retrieve stolen items to give to the Goldman family, during a break from tracking down the killer or killers of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. But certain "evidence" and "witnesses" suggested otherwise.

On a technical note, I don't think the photo-realism look is my friend, but I thought it was necessary for the stamp idea. And an odd angle. After watching him live on tv today, I was seeing all sorts of great things that got lost in the angle I chose to work with. And very difficult colors to work with, and the more I stare at it, the more I dislike. But screw it, I'm finished.

P.S. Acrylic on chipboard.
