From Twitter: Where were you 16 years ago during the O.J. Simpson pursuit?
Thursday afternoon, The Times asked its followers on Twitter, "16 yr anniversary: Where were you when O.J. Simpson was being 'chased' in his Bronco through LA in 1994?" A post on the Comments Blog asking the same question had drawn 68 responses as of Thursday morning.
