I have a new hero. That hero's name is Jesse Washington, the Associated Press Entertainment Editor. Washington sent a memo to AP reporters telling them that Paris Hilton will no longer be mentioned on the AP Wire -- barring any major events. I'm hoping this ban includes any new photos of her "girlie bits" or the release of any more video tapes of her being naked/stupid/racist/drunk/stoned/or sexually engaged with some poor herpes infection waiting to happen.
Please let this be the beginning of a trend. CNN.com, are you listening? Leave this kind of reporting to the celebrity tabloids and stick to actual news.

By the way, that really is a photo of the Hilton Hotel in Paris.
