We’ll Always Have Paris

How do you get your rhythm back when you’ve been away from a blog?  You look for something rich and thematic, something that you and your readers and colleagues can really feast on.

That would be Paris Hilton.  Paris Hilton Sues Over Hallmark Card.

The plaintiff’s prima facie claims are pretty straightforward; if it cares at all, Hallmark has to hope that it can pull off some flavor of a First Amendment defense.  Is the card a non-confusing parodic use of Paris’ image and catch phrase?  The problem, it seems to me, is that Paris may be parody-proof.
