"otherwise mundane lives" - "mundane" is a pretty big word for a girl like Paris. I bet that's just her daddy talkin'.
The petition, looking to appeal to "all fans and supporters and all that are outraged by injustice," describes Hilton as someone who "provides hope for young people all over the U.S. and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to [most of] our otherwise mundane lives."
In exchange for her global good deeds, the petition contends, she should not be locked up.
"If the late Former President Gerald Ford could find it in his heart to pardon the late Former President Richard Nixon after his mistake(s), we undeniably support Paris Hilton being pardoned for her honest mistake as well, and we hope and expect The Governor will understand and grant this unusual but important request in good faith to Ms. Paris Whitney Hilton."This actually reads sort of like it was (literally) written by Paris herself. She managed to pick up the fact, maybe one day in school if she went to school, that Ford pardoned Nixon, and naturally, since her world revolves so tightly around herself, she concluded that a pardon was a reasonable solution to her crime. After all, she does so much good in the world.
Somehow, the article neglects to mention that Paris was slated to appear in an Indian-made movie as (no joke) Mother Theresa. I wonder what the status of that project is, though I'm too lazy to google it right now.
