I never thought I would live to see the day when Paris Hilton was called both “underrated” and then compared to Shakespeare in the same article. A historic day indeed. Finally, someone has bravely risen to the defense of this unfairly maligned, supremely talented person with a hotel chain last name most well known for her participation in an infamous sex tape and saying the word “hot” all the time. It has been long overdo. Ironically too much exposure to Paris Hilton is a leading cause of blindness and brain injury, but no doubt the author was aware of that connection and selected the example for that very reason.

I kid because I love. Seriously, great piece and thanks for writing it! This is a topic I had not considered from this perspective before and it was eye-opening (yes? no?) to be sure.
