Ok, I hadn’t intended to post anything about Paris Hilton. I find her to be vapid, uninteresting and undeserving of any attention. What did she do besides have the good fortune to be born into a wealthy family.
But when I stumbled onto Time’s feature I decided to try it out and voila, here you go. As long as I commenting let me say a couple of things. First, I truly don’t feel badly for her. I may not always agree with the law, but it needs to be doled out fairly and equitably.
I suppose that some could argue that she is receiving more because of her notoriety, but that comes with the territory. She worked hard to put herself into the public sphere and has to live with the consequences of doing so.
In the end it is still hard to try and work up any sympathy. I am a lucky man with a lot of things to be thankful for. But at the end of the day I am busting my ass for everything I have. I earned it all, whereas I don’t see her as having done much of anything.
Call it jealousy, call it whatever you want. She made her bed and now she has to lie in it.
