What? No Julep cup?*

Many gems have already come out this afternoon about the Paris Hilton sentencing, but, as a former Kentuckian, my personal favorite was an extremely descriptive paragraph buried deep in the LATimes.com story, which said:
Conservatively dressed in a British jockey suit, with gray jacket and black pants, the hotel heiress appeared as stone-faced as during her modeling days in New York City during fashion week. But instead of gliding down the red carpet, Hilton made her way up the courthouse steps, roped off from throngs of reporters and photographers by yellow police tape.
Paris may not have known her license was suspended, but, by God, she appears to be aware that this is Derby weekend.
