I received a gratis subscription to CNN Pipeline and, as part of that, I now get their "Breaking News" e-mails, intended to alert me to matters of great importance. One of those breaking-news bulletins came in on my Blackberry last night. Did Congressional Democrats broker a deal with Bush on Iraq? A massive tornado in Kansas perhaps? Other huge news on the national scene?
Here's what I got: "A judge has sentenced Paris Hilton to 45 days in Los Angeles County jail for violating her probation on a reckless driving charge."
Just freakin' shoot me.
