O.J. Simpson trial watchers, especially those who are beginning to nod off, might find "Texas Justice" dramatic relief. Besides, this trial is over in two nights.

According to the New York Times, both contracts are covered, just as Trump covered the three-year, $1-million contract of Gary Barbaro when the defensive back signed with the New Jersey Generals in November, 1983. At a cost of $27,970, Trump took out a $1.18-million policy with Thompson Heath & Bond Ltd. of London.
