As Oscar Pistorius faces murder charges in South Africa, New Yorkers like the rest of the world seemed to be both shocked and fascinated by the case. Many people see parallels in the death of Oscar’s girlfriend and the slaying of Nicole Simpson for which O.J Simpson stood trial. Certainly,the word Oscar doesn’t just mean an awards ceremony this weekend but springs to mind a shocking story involving a superstar athlete. Ratings for both the Academy Awards and Pistorius case are likely to be high. Our thoughts, however, remain with Reeva Steenkamps family who like the rest of us are trying to make sense of this tragedy.
