Recalling and recoiling in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Mattel is poised to announce another recall of toys manufactured in China. The company already recalled 1.5 million made-in-China toys less than two weeks ago. That’s the thing about Chinese toys. You fill your toy box, but an hour later, it’s empty again.
• An agent representing the family of murder victim Ron Goldman announced plans to release O.J. Simpson’s “If I Did It” book. “The family and publisher have pledged to leave Simpson’s manuscript entirely intact, but they will also add key commentary,” said the agent. “The Goldmans, the publisher and Sharlene Martin will all contribute portions of sales proceeds to the Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice.” The key commentary will probably be a footnote stating the word “If” should be removed from the title.
