Here is something else I thought about the similarities and differences between John Junot and me when I read your comment about one of the stupidest things that Fuhrman ever said. That's something that John might have said except for his focus of Kato and Kato 's access to the entire house. John's point about Fuhrman underscores his point about Kato.
I also believe that one of the dumbest things Fuhrman has ever said involves having O.J. in the maid's room then coming out again. The really, really, really, really STUPID! part of the story is the part that has O.J. coming back out to walk into the front door in case he was seen earlier trying to sneak into the frontů.
What? Huh? Holy dumb-shit Batman! Why would ANYBODY with or without an agenda say something THAT stupid? If O.J.'s goal was to sneak into his house he had already done it. There is NO reason for him to come back out even if he is panic-stricken and not thinking clearly.
A drowning man might pull a rescuer under in a panic stricken attempt to save himself. But once he's safely on shore, he doesn't immediately jump back in, swim back out to the spot where he though he was gong to die and then start flailing around helplessly in the water again yelling for help. Yet, if you ask most people whether they believe that story they will come up with all manner of ingenious ways to explain how it could be true if they WANT to believe it badly enough.
That's the secret to Fuhrman's success as a best selling author and sought-after television and radio personality (ABC wanted to hire him as an expert commentator at one time but Joe Madison put the cabash on that idea). Everyone knows that great detectives are quirky and sometimes make big mistakes. If you want to believe that Fuhrman is a great detective, whether you like him or not as a man, you will find a way to believe what he says about the evidence. -- Jasper
