From the "What were they thinking?" files.

Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie are presently filming new episodes for The Simple Life III. As if that isn't bad enough, some rocket surgeon got the great idea of having Paris and Nicole work in a public school. The concept is that Paris and Nicole would work in the lunch room and substitute teach a class!

OK, this is wrong on soooooo many levels. First, who the hell wants to watch The Simple Life III? The first was an abomination. Paris Hilton is the only person who could make Jessica Simpson look a) smart and b) talented. The first season of this foul piece of excrement was the television equivalent of a car accident. I refuse to watch such drivel on principle alone. My wife watched the first season (I left the room and made my opinion quite obvious) and was mildly amused. She tried to watch the second season and couldn't even watch the first episode. So, I propose that anyone caught watching this garbage should loose the right to watch T.V. in the first place.

But that is not the worst of it. Who in their right mind thought that having Paris "grainy, green, sex video on the internet, Hilton teach a class of middle schoolers would be a good idea? I try very hard to make sure that my kid (soon to be kids) is not exposed to the kind of garbage Paris Hilton (and the show) embody. Why the hell would I send my kid to school so he can be exposed to it. Its not ok the mention God in school. You can't recite the Pledge of allegiance in school because of the reference to God (and no particular religion's reference to God). You can't even use the word "holiday" in some schools because it may imply religion or something special about that day to someone who might be offended. But you can invite a person who thinks WalMart is a place you buy walls at (not to mention the whole sex video thing again), is qualified to teach at class?

And people wonder what is wrong with our public schools? The school administrator who approved this should be seriously reprimanded for this nonsense.
