OJ Simpson Dying from "Terminal Diabetes"

I saw the corner store stand today that OJ Simpson only has "months to live", I was intrigued. So when I was on the way to a friends BBQ, I looked up on my phone to determine the cause of this terrible diagnosis. To my surprise, yet another confusing and skewed public announcement of "Diabetes". Supposedly, OJ only has a few months to live from TERMINAL DIABETES!!

Well, that's a hoot! Firstly, The Enquirer is a rag. I guess I was hearing/seeing things on the news today then, when I "thought" I heard them say that Simpson is getting out on parole which he's been trying to do for years. Nothing about Diabetes was mentioned.

Nope, here it is:

The parole becomes effective Oct. 2. But they aren't letting him out. That makes sense.

I heard on TV that his sentencing was reduced from approx. 30 years to approx. 4 years. Not that it matters much if he's "terminal" in 3 months...
