Why I Don't Care About Stolen Music and Movies
Because the very wealthy -- particularly the famous -- can commit crimes, endanger society with reckless behavior, even murder ... and spend only 3 days in jail.
Of course, they do get a little dehydrated because they can't eat or drink while they're crying uncontrollably over how mean people are.
But that's not nearly enough of a penalty. If they get to drive drunk at night with the headlights turned off and a suspended license, then I get a free song once in a while. If they get to whine and cry their way out of jail after 3 days, I get a free movie and a hand towel embroidered with an elegant letter.
And it doesn't have to be a Paris Hilton song, movie or hand towel, because that would be further endangering the public.
In fact, I should get a free song every time I'm channel surfing and accidentally see Paris and/or one of her equally useless, drunken, oily friends.
On second thought, if I ever commit a crime, I should be able to serve my time in Paris Hilton's mansion. Now that would be equal justice.
... Hmmm, the judge is upset at the house arrest and has ordered Paris to appear in court tomorrow morning to determine if she should be returned to jail, though the Superior Court spokesman says the sheriff, not the judge, determines when inmates are released.
Update: Nevermind. Paris, Paris, Paris. What does not destroy you will make you stronger and hopefully a better person. Destruction or a better person. Either way, it's a win for us all.
