She called Barbara Walters, even though she said that she wished the media would leave her alone and report on more important things???

Well to be fair her mother called Barbara Walters initially, but of course Paris did choose to speak to her. The headline there on abcnews.com is false and misleading.

I think you will soon see Paris trying to be like Angelina Jolie-without the Brad and the adoptions.

Ah, I see that now. Still, she didn't have to choose to speak with her, and I think that her mom being on the phone with Barbara Walters despite Paris wanting media to leave her alone is still odd. You'd think her mother of all people would respect her wishes to be left alone, instead of, "Hey, Barbara Walters is on the other line, wanna talk??"

I agree. Well just look at how her mother behaved in court. They want it both ways, it seems.

Everything you said in this post about what else can cause accidents is true. I tend to bristle at this kind of argument, however, because someone could take it as permission to drive after drinking. "Hey, I only had 2, and I KNOW I'm okay."

And you know what? They may be. But you know what? They might not be, either. I wish more people would err on the side of thinking they'd better not drive, or wait another hour before doing so.

Who blows .08% after one drink? Unless you've got an enzymatic defect (and even then, unlikely), nobody has one glass of wine and then blows a .10%.

If you're a 200 lb guy, you'd need to have 4.5 drinks IN SUCCESSION. If you space them out, subtract .01% for every 40 minutes that span your drinking. If anyone thinks it's fine for a guy to down 5 shots one after another and then get into a car and drive....I think there is something questionable with your reasoning.

Nobody gets pulled over for a DUI after 1-2 drinks. Nobody. It's not even worth discussing. Whether .08% is reasonable, however, is definitely discussion-worthy.

i believer we're arguing the same point... others were discussing how you can get into an accident after even 1 drink, not me. i was just stating how you can get into an accdient while doing a lot of things. 1 normal drink does not provide anymore of a distraction, in the majority of human beings, than any of the other items i mentioned. probably even less so. once you cross that one drink line, things start to get blurry... figuretivly and literaly.

i'd have no problem with the legal limit going down to .06... but that still would be more than 2 normal drinks for most people, certainly more than one normal drink.

People do take it as permission, and that's the problem. Too many people "knew they were ok" after two, then they got in a crash and killed/injured themselves or others. If someone wants to take that chance with their own life, fine. But the fact is that once you take that chance with the lives of others, all bets are off and you really have no damn business doing so. You are making the choice to do that, no human and no circumstances are forcing you to do it. And you can't blame it on being under the influence if you're really not, right?

This is what the NY Daily News says, if true well that would explain any health problems. I think doing that would take a toll on your psyche too..

LOS ANGELES - It was apparently the one time she was camera-shy.

Paris Hilton was so terrified guards would snap a cell-phone picture of her on the toilet that she didn't eat or drink for three days, which left her facing a life-threatening collapse, a source told the Daily News. She also was not taking prescribed medication while in jail, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said.

The stainless steel lavatory in the hotel heiress' 12-foot-by-8-foot cell was in plain view of a large window in the door, which guards could look through 24 hours a day.

"She was absolutely terrified that one of the guards or staffers would get her with the cell-phone cam and it would wind up on the Internet," a Hilton insider said yesterday.

"She didn't eat or drink a single thing for three days because she didn't want to use the toilet. She was in real danger."

Hilton also suffered from "extreme claustrophobia" and began hyperventilating and freaking out.

"She cried the entire time, and that wasn't helping the dehydration," the source said.

Jail medical officials became concerned that severe dehydration and a buildup of waste and toxins in Hilton's body could cause a complete collapse and "even kill her," the source said.

Baca suggested Hilton was on suicide watch last night, saying she would be kept under close scrutiny to ensure "there isn't anything harmful done to herself by herself, which is a great concern to me."

Baca said Friday that Hilton's "psychological problems" were worsened by the fact that she was not getting a "particular medication" she normally takes.

Judge Michael Sauer didn't buy the medical excuse, sending Hilton back to jail on Friday to serve the remainder of her 45-day sentence. She could serve just over two weeks with time off for good behavior.

She spent yesterday heavily sedated in the medical wing of L.A.'s Twin Towers jail, a source close to her told The News.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who said he was in California this weekend for previously scheduled events, said yesterday he'll meet with the sheriff tomorrow about the larger issues surrounding Hilton's case.

Sharpton told The News he plans to ask about possible discrepancies in how prisoners of different races and economic classes are treated.

"I will present cases to him and ask why these cases didn't warrant the same consideration [as Hilton's]," Sharpton said.

Meanwhile, Hilton's friends in the Hollywood party set were losing no time trying to steal her socialite crown.

"Although her friends are saying supportive things in public, behind her back they're saying she's faking it," said the insider.

"Paris is the queen bee of her clique in Hollywood. ... Now she's not there, there is a lot of jostling for her crown. Nicole Richie is planning parties, Kimberly Stewart is planning parties, Kim Kardashian is planning parties.

"Thank God [Lindsay Lohan] is in rehab."

Hilton's lawyer had been expected to file an appeal.

But in a statement last night, Paris said she would serve her time.

Al Sharpton needs to stop sticking his nose into everybody's business. I cannot stand this guy.

I thought this was interesting. I'm a .07 after one drink an hour. that doesn't even take into effect other health factors, that would probably push it higher.

You can calculate here:

If I have two vodka drinks in an hour, I'd hit .07. Good thing I take the bus home when I do happy hour with my friends after work!
