What I’d Do For Hannah Montana Tickets. A Lesson in Asymmetry.

Last week I heard the story about a six-year-old girl who entered a contest to win Hannah Montana concert tickets. The winning essay she wrote was about how her father was killed in Iraq (and I guess Hannah Montana songs would make things all better). It was all a big lie, and now the mother of the child, the woman who actually WROTE the essay, speaks out about how yeah, maybe it is kind of wrong to, as Matt Lauer put it, invoke the name of a fallen soldier. IN THE NAME OF MILEY CYRUS.
Things have gotten rough for her, she had to close out her MySpace page (The horror! My Top 8! Nooooo!) and move out of her apartment, apparently to a new one without mirrors.
