Christmas came early this year with the gift of excellent side-by-side newspaper stories about two of our heroines: Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Basically, Paris has responded to the "inside job" robber who stole $2 million worth of jewelry from her house. As she put it, she has "upped the security majorly." We can continue to look to her for well-rounded phrases. As to Britney's gift to us, a court this year awarded her father (her caretaker) $75 per hour more to take care of her (an additional $51 thousand for the year.) She is so self-less in her care of her father. Most of us don't have the money to emulate these heroines but they are examples, for us, in our smaller matters.
