CNN30: ‘Have you seen O.J. Simpson?’

iReporter Wendy H. Wilkins was a student at UCLA when former American football star O.J. Simpson went on trial in Los Angeles, California, for the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

 

The year was 1995. She remembers being stopped by tourists in Westwood, near the Brentwood neighborhood where Simpson lived.

 

"The first thing out of their mouths was, 'Where does O.J. Simpson live?'" said Wilkins, a financial marketing manager in Durham, North Carolina, who shared her memories as part of the CNN30 project, which asked people to offer perspectives on 30 events from the past three decades. "I was so struck that tourists were visiting Los Angeles and that's what they wanted to see."

 

She got used to it. In an interview with CNN Radio's Steve Kastenbaum, she talks about what it was like to be sucked into the trial – and what she was doing the moment the verdict came down.

Stand up America, someone help with this comment. If you work 40 years as a US citizen and pay into Social Security you get about $1,000. a month back in payments at age 62/65.

Now if a "any" illegal woman has a child in the US that child can get monthly US money from Social Security without the parent or child having paid 1 dime into our Social Security System,,, YES or NO ?????
