Helio and O.J.

Two South Florida residents are in the news this week but not for the good kind. The two residents are two-time Indy Champion and one-time Dancing With The Stars Champion Helio Castroneves and former football star O.J. Simpson. The former, a nice guy and the latter, a not so nice guy.

Let's start with Helio on the alleged tax evasion and fraud charges: What was Helio thinking? I just can't believe folks who evade the IRS on their taxes especially when they are public figures.

Helio was only known in the race car circuits and as previously mentioned, some South Floridians but DWTS (a top five show) took his fame to another level. Think about it. He had about 20 to 25 million watching him shake his groove thing on each episode, doesn't he think some IRS agents might like DWTS too.

Helio's crisis reminds me of another reality star with tax problems; Richard Hatch, the first "Survivor" winner. Seriously, what's up with these celebrities? This is the IRS we're talking about; you can run but you can't hide. It is still a proven theory: Render unto God what is God's, and unto Ceaser's what is Ceaser's. Simple as that.

Now onto the knucklehead O.J. I'm just speechless. How could someone who got away with double murder thirteen years ago get involved in foolishness that might make him spend the rest of his life in jail? Idiot!
