It's been two decades since OJ Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. The nation was first riveted by the prime time TV news broadcast of a slow speed police chase down LA freeways as the former football star came to turn himself in. Then, Simpson's murder trial was also televised for an entire year. Now the FX cable channel is about to present a 10-part series on what's been called "The Trial of the 20th Century." But why in the 21st century do we still care? Warren Olney talks to Linda Deutsch , special correspondent for Associated Press, about the impact the trial had on Los Angeles and the nation.
