I Can't Believe I'm Blogging About Paris Hilton
Thursday, May 10, 2007
...but it seems I just can't get away from her, as she has popped up on every single newscast, day and night.

There is a petition to the governor of California (Mr. Terminator himself) floating around cyberspace. It has an anemic 900 signatures.

It pretty much sums up Paris' side of the story though - here are some quotes:
She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives.
(Who wrote this? I checked Snopes.com - nothing there yet saying this is a hoax. But how can it be real?)
Hilton is notable for her leading roles on the FOX reality series The Simple Life and in the remake of the Vincent Price horror classic "House of Wax".
(Seriously, is this a joke? Is this petition put out by The Onion?)
Please sign to tell The Honorable Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of the State of California, to think about the welfare of this young woman who has made a mortal error and deserves a second chance like so many others in our great nation have been served with after a mistake they have made.
I especially love the last part... she deserves a second chance.

Yes, she was given a second chance, called probation. She blew it. She violated her probation and was caught driving not once, but twice for having a suspended license (Jan. 15 and Feb. 27). She never took her alcohol class, either. She's crying that "he told me I could" - 'he' referring to her publicist. She is a 26 year old adult.

She should have just used a chauffeur.

If ever someone needed prayers, it's Paris Hilton. Spiritually abandoned by her parents, who neglected to teach her right from wrong, form her conscience, or hold her accountable, adrift in a life with a lot of money but nothing of substance. Pray that she gets some gifts of wisdom and prudence, at least. Maybe she'll have a meaningful encounter with a jail ministry - better pray for those guys, too.
