Sometimes you get the best news from The Globe. Iâ€™m not talking about the Globe and Mail, or the Boston Globe. Iâ€™m talking about the small, square Globe you read in the checkout line. The Globe is the only paper that covers the Bushâ€™s impending divorce, which may be impending for the rest of their lives if they stay married, but no matter.
The Globe had the story the Journal didnâ€™t find fit to printâ€“ Paris Hiltonâ€™s half-aunt is a graduate of Cranston University. If you pursue sex and drugs and the wild life and you donâ€™t have mega bucks you might end up like the Hilton black sheep, Elizabeth Avanzino, who didnâ€™t get special treatment at the A.C.I., and is not being interviewed by Larry King.
I could get snippy about the values of obscenely rich people who let one of their family live on the street, but money doesnâ€™t cure everything. Families break their hearts and bank accounts trying vainly to save loved ones from self-destruction, so who knows? It doesnâ€™t look like the Hiltons tried, but maybe they did.
Iâ€™m just glad Paris didnâ€™t run anyone over. I hope they donâ€™t let her have the car keys.
