Poor comparison

June 21, 2007

Re "The princess and the heiress," Opinion, June 16

What Meghan Daum fails to acknowledge in her comparison of Princess Diana and Paris Hilton are Diana's connections with the common man. Even if she did it for PR purposes, Diana literally embraced people with AIDS at a time when no one else would, traveled to Africa to draw attention to poverty on that continent and made her sons ride the Tube and eat fast food so they would have an appreciation of how the typical Londoner lived. That's what made her the "people's princess."

Rest in peace, Diana. And Paris -- grow up.
