Comedian George Wallace, the headliner at the Flamingo, offered a new joke proclaiming O.J. Simpson’s obvious innocence on the grounds that everybody knows the man uses knives, not guns. It was tasteless. But I laughed. That is why I went to see a comic last night. After a few days on the O.J. Simpson story, it felt good to be back in a showroom on the Strip.
