Not a Paris Hilton Post (Okay, so I'm Lying)

Thanks to John Duke for this touching link. There's a nice photo gallery, too.

(Aug. 7) -- As tough as jail was for Paris Hilton, her mother Kathy Hilton wants the world to know it was excruciating for her as well."

Is there something sociologically important (if in no other way) that this is packaged as Entertainment News? Public, if quite probably actual, hair-shirting by a mother as circus (since the family has a good chunk of all the bread)? Bill, really, do you find the fact of PH and her passage endlessly fascinating, or the reaction to and exploitation of it moreso? Or are the two actually insuperable?

It certainly goes beyond being famous for being famous, and into being worthy of discussion solely because a fair amount of people seem to find themselves endlessly discussing her.

What I find fascinating is that anybody cares about this. The whole thing just amazes me.

Are you sure it's not just to boost your blog-readership? I just wonder how many of your readers log on just to see what falderal PH is up to today.

You just keep on reporting for us, Bill.

I have a feeling I lose readers when I do a PH post.
