$30 million: That's the name of that tune

Robert Blake missed the life sentence, but lost the bankroll.

The jury in Blake's civil trial found him liable for the death of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, and assessed damages in the amount of $30 million.

That's a lot of cockatoo food.

In a related story, O.J. Simpson decried the Blake verdict, saying that holding Blake civilly liable for Bakley's death after he had been found not guilty of her murder amounts to double jeopardy. And he should know.

You know, when you've got O.J. sticking up for you, you really can't feel all that solid about yourself.

Some savvy TV executive should create a new reality series, in which Blake and Simpson each hunt for the real killers of the other guy's wife. It would be the classic Strangers on a Train scenario, only in reverse.

That ought to be worth $30 million, easy.
