The Brentwood, Calif., mansion at 360 N. Rockingham Ave., where O.J. Simpson lived when his ex-wife was slain two miles away, was bulldozed on Wednesday in order to make way for a new owner's home. As the dust clouds swelled and neighbors applauded, Simpson shrugged off the moment, saying: "It's not my house, and I could care less." Simpson, who had lived there for 20 years, said he was notified the demolition was scheduled to take place, but he was unmoved by the destruction. "It's part of my past," Simpson told the Associated Press in a telephone interview from a rented home a few miles away. "I am a sentimental guy," Simpson said. "But ... I've always tried to live my life forward and not backward."
