Ruby wouldn't serve O.J.

In case you've been hiding under a rock and haven't seen this yet today, go read about how Jeff Ruby kicked O.J. Simpson out of his Louisville restaurant before the Derby last week. Post your comments here. With nearly 200 comments up already, there'll no doubt be more on this story showing up in the Enquirer throughout the week.

Jeff Ruby has shown us something the world today lacks: men with a spine!

I want MORE Jeff Rubys in this world.

God, how incredibly refreshing to witness a public man saying what he means and meaning what he says.

Simpson is a complete and utter freak. The Mayor of Louisville should have thrown him out of the CITY!

I may be in the minority but Simpson, whether we like it or not, was found innocent. For Ruby to throw him out of the restaurant was inappropriate. I understand that people are upset that he got off scott free but evently people need to move on.

People who think it was inappropriate for Ruby to throw simpson out are wrong. A restaurant owner reserves the right to throw out anyone at anytime for whatever reason. He didn't want a reprehensible human being drawing negative attention to his establishment, same as denying service to a ridiculously drunk person, or someone disturbing other guests.

With that said....this was the ultimate "two birds, one stone" moment for Ruby. He got to kick OJ out of his place, and he got his name in the national news, which is what we all know Ruby cared most about. If anyone here has been around him before, you know he's a pretty big jerk. I can't say anything bad about the food at his restaurants though, wow.

I'm glad Ruby had the 'nads to kick him out, but he is a BIG JERK and hypocrite as well. He says he won't serve murderers, but he does gladly serve rapists, wife beaters, and child molesters, all the time. All one has to do is to look at his client mix to see this. And yes, the ultimate goal was to generate media attention.
