Paris Hilton: Why We Care
Kaufman on 06/09/2007
|On the evening of June 8, 2007, one story had monopolized the American cable news broadcasts, pushing such stories as the Senate's refusal to take any constructive action whatsoever over the immigration issue, the devastating hurricane in Australia, and the continuing morbid condition of Generalisimo Franco right out of our consciousness. And what story had had such an impact?|
In a surprising reversal, a court had ordered Paris Hilton back to jail to serve out the remainder of her sentence. What kind of person was she to deserve such scrutiny? Why was the tale of her imprisonment more noteworthy than that of, say, Scooter Libby, or a diaper-clad astronaut? We will investigate this story in detail, and I will try to give you some idea of the true significance of Ms. Hilton. By the end of this quiz, you should know why she knocked everyone else off the news shows, why we'll always have Paris.
And although I only have ten questions for you, here is a bonus piece of trivia with which you can wow your friends: She was escorted to court for her appointment with destiny in police car 865.
