O.J. Simpson's hypothetical memoir, If I Did It, continues to stir up controversy, with the rights of the book passing from the former football star to the family of the slain Ron Goldman — and the book being released yesterday. The family is still trying to collect more than $30 million from the wrongful-death judgment against O.J. They appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss why they went ahead with publishing the book. "I didn't want to see [Simpson] profit one penny from butchering Ron, murdering Nicole," said Ron's father, Fred Goldman. "After reading the book... we view it as a confession. This isn't an innocent man writing a book like this." As for the money that the Goldmans will be receiving from sales of the book, Fred adds, "We took away the opportunity from him to earn additional money, and that money is the only form of justice." On Oprah's part, she said she will not read the book. "I personally wouldn't want to be in a position to encourage people to buy this book... I think it's despicable."
