Some Sympathy for Paris Hilton

POOR Paris Hilton! As unlikely as the preceding sentence might seem,
there is ample reason to pity Ms. Hilton, the heiress, reality-TV
actress, product pitchwoman and accidental porn starlet.

Ms. Hilton just can't seem to get a break in the digital age. She
suffered embarrassment back in 2003 when a homemade sex tape hit the
Internet, and now her Sidekick -- a high-tech toy that combines phone,
organizer and camera and also lets users send e-mail and instant
messages -- has been hacked. Its contents, like her movie, were posted
to the Internet for any and all to enjoy.

"She was pretty upset about it," someone told MSNBC. "It's one thing
to have people looking at your sex tapes, but having people reading
your personal e-mails is a real invasion of privacy."
