I spent my first 18 years in the People's Republic of New Jersey and don't often have nice things to say about the most congested and least moral state in the union. However, every now and then, I am pleasantly surprised. Turns out parents in Buena Vista, NJ rejected the idea of Paris Hilton filming the simple life in their middle school.
The proposed filming had provoked heated opposition from parents who felt it was not appropriate and feared that it would hold their community up to ridicule.
Producers of the hit show starring racy heiress Paris Hilton had approached school officials in December, offering to pay $5,000 to film an episode at a school 30 miles west of Atlantic City.
Good for Buena Vista! The parents who objected were correct. Paris Hilton is not a fit role model for middle school students and wanted nothing more than to ridicule and embarrass them. After winning this battle, they should know focus their sites on eliminating the plague of school officials who allowed the process to even get this far.
