OJ Simpson fears he has chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a football-linked neurodegenerative disease that causes dementia, aggression and suicidal thoughts. The 70-year-old, who played 11 seasons in the NFL, told his local newspaper in Las Vegas that he has days when he cannot remember names or words. It can only be diagnosed in an autopsy. Simpson only suffered two concussions in his career at the Buffalo Bills (right) and San Francisco 49ers before he was embroiled in a legal saga over the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown (inset) and her friend, ultimately acquitted then jailed for armed robbery in 2008. #ojsimpson

Thrilled to have made another trip to Los Angeles over Spring Break, where I spoke at a conference about the Hungarian Revolution’s impact on the Olympic Games, spent some *quality* time with the locals (), and enjoyed the beaches even through torrential downpours. Take me back, LA!
