Arianna pointed out something that had eluded me in my earlier post mocking Paris "Jailbird" Hilton--namely, that hopefully this will not be the only time that an absurdly wealthy, mind-bogglingly vapid aristocrat has finally been taken to task for repeatedly pissing on the rule of law. At least this is someone we've all seen naked. Honestly, I had merely thought of it as yet another distraction to keep us proles in line, but in a broader context, perhaps this is a harbinger of greater things to come. No, I do not mean a Condi Rice sex tape, I mean more accountability for people who think they can get all Judge Dredd or Joe Francis whenever they want. One can dream.
