Las Vegas + O.J. Simpson = Popular Google search

As the O.J. Simpson case nears in Las Vegas, The Movable Buffet (Dispatches from Las Vegas by Richard Abowitz) writes that "O.J. Simpson remains biggest headliner." Abowitz writes: "You would think Simpson would be old news in Vegas. But if you do a Google news search on our city, of the six related suggested topic searches, only 'las vegas hotel' and 'las vegas casino' are not directly connected to Simpson. No 'echelon place,' 'bankrupt lake las vegas' or even 'criss angel.' The remaining search suggestions from Google on news about Las Vegas: 'oj simpson,' 'nicole brown simpson,' 'sports memorabilia,' and 'armed robbery.' "

Vegas probably wishes this O.J. Simpson news, like everything that happens in Vegas, would just stay in Vegas. The Simpson case is slated for September. In other Simpson news, the Associated Press is reporting: "A fourth co-defendant pleaded guilty Monday in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery and kidnapping case, agreeing to testify against the Hall of Fame football player and one remaining co-defendant."
