Paris Hilton Goes to Jail: Today's Cartoon

If Paris Hilton is using her time in jail to decide how to solve the world's problems, the Bush Administration may want to consider checking her into Guantanamo Bay; because she's definitely got a lot of thinking to do.

Personally, I believe that the best thing Ms. Hilton can do to make the world a better place is exactly what she's doing right now... isolating herself from the media and allowing the public the opportunity to hopefully get some real news for a change. Still, it's unfortunate that for someone who is wishing to make a positive impact on society, the only meaningful contribution this "celebrity socialite" can make is to remain out of it for (hopefully) the next three weeks.

Then again, perhaps the time in the big house might also work to Ms. Hilton's benefit. Of course, by that I don't mean "rehabilitation", but rather the spawning of yet another ridiculous trend to be emulated by her young admirers. Who knows; pretty soon going to jail could be viewed in the same manner as someone getting a barbwire tattoo around their arm. While once upon a time it may have made people look threatening and dangerous, eventually everybody starts doing it and all of a sudden it becomes nothing more than a permanent mark of conformity... on their criminal record.
