Dow Jones Pimps Paris

When we were at the newsstand earlier, we couldn't help but notice the cover of this week's Barron's. "Your Worst Nightmare," says the headline. "Rich parents say their biggest fear is having their children turn into the next Paris Hilton. What wealth managers can do to help kids cope gracefully with money and privilege." And it's illustrated, natch, with a picture of her Parisness.

We're sure this was not a marketing/circ decision at all. We're sure that like, VF's Graydon Carter, the Barron's honchos were just fascinated with Hilton as a cultural figure.

Because, after all, business guys never go for dumb blondes.
