O.J.'s Story for Rent: If you didn't want to fork out $30 to purchase "O.J. Simpson: The Interview," you now have the option of shelling out $3 to rent the 2 1/2-hour tape, in which Simpson tells his side of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. York Home Video, a small company that mainly distributes straight-to-video movies, acquired the distribution rights from producer Tony Hoffman in late February. President Tanya York says the firm shipped 7,000 copies to stores in the U.S. and Canada. Some outlets, such as VideoShark in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, are donating proceeds to charity. But two major chains, Blockbuster and Tower Video, have declined to stock it. "It's had its day," says John Thrasher, the buyer for Tower.
