MY ONGOING ALIENATION FROM THE CULTURE, OR PERHAPS IT'S JUST THE AGING PROCESS:
1. I never heard of Paris Hilton until Jon Stewart made a joke about her sex video on The Daily Show a few months ago. He called her "MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Paris Hilton." I wondered why a MacArthur Genius Grant recipient would make a sex video.
2. I still don't understand why she's famous, though I realize now that she's not actually a MacArthur Genius Grant recipient.
3. I also don't understand why people would want to download a video of her having sex. Seeing her naked seems about as appealing as seeing David Gergen naked.
