Johnnie Cochran’s Death Doesn’t Stop Him From Blogging

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Johnnie Cochran may be dead but that doesn’t mean he’s stopped using computers.

Believe it or not, the O.J. Simpson attorney has launched an after-death blog where he comments on everything from Pope John Paul II’s death to the corruption of Los Angeles politics.

Cochran started the blog a few days ago with the help of Los Angeles-based writer Rodger Jacobs, who figures he was contacted by the attorney because “I work with all sorts of new and emerging writers and he knows I won’t censor him.”

So far, death isn’t stopping Cochran from being controversial. One of his columns questions why the Pontiff thought it was bad to take Terri Schiavo off life support yet opted out of such methods himself.

Jacobs admits he’s already been told, “You are going to get so sued,” but it isn’t stopping him.

He’s considering publishing an after-death blog from the Pope but probably not from Schiavo because “her writing just lays there on the page.”
