I have to sort of agree w/ SS on this one....seeing her in jail, though deservedly, I suppose, doesn't make me happy or anything like the such.
In fact, IMO, it's a giant waste of the state's tax dollars, which comes as no surprise in this country. Too often we put folks behind bars who don't need to be, and it costs too much money to keep them there everyday. I think jail should be resereved for the real perpetrators of the law and humanity (murderers, thieves, rapists, child molestors, etc.), and maybe we should come up with another system for folks who break the law, yet not as severely as those I just mentioned, and at not as much cost to you and me.
Personally, if I lived in California, I'd be pissed that some of my tax dollars are going to put up a Paris Hilton in jail for a month or whatever. Make her pay for it herself! I can't remember what the average cost per day it is for a person to be in jail, but I know it's high enough where sometimes you wonder if it's worth it.
Just my 2-cents
EDIT: I also agree w/ TS, that this tabloid BS doesn't need to be here, but as all things Grateful Dead, we'll find ways to talk about it and express our opinions on issues/matters at hand.
