distractions Here's Paris Hilton people. Can't resist kicking a disadvantaged rich person when they are down. There's also a YouTube music video, an embedded links provided below. I'm not trying to be unfair, though it is probably clear I fell on the "rich people have different sense of justice than the rest of us" side of the perspective. ...Or is that inflated sense of entitlement? Was I angry at her early leave taking, even if only temporary? You bet I was. But I'm not su much angry at this deluded child of privilege as I am the entire social system that allows for this and perpetuates it. I can get angrier at and about more relevant things, such as an AT&T tele-serf who refused to explain why I am being billed for unsaked for "service options" like emergency roadside service and the dubious "right" to dial my calls at voice instruction only. He refused to talk with me for "security" reasons, I refused to provide him a list of the most recent phone calls I'd made on the damned earbug telephone I have. Ah well. so it's easier to rant about Paris and her get out of jail free card. It's late at night. I'm going to bed.
