Driving Miss Miley

There's been a dust-up in the blogosphere and entertainment media this week about 15-year-old Miley Cyrus and her father, "Achy Breaky" Billy Ray Cyrus, being shown seat belt-less while riding in a Range Rover in Miley's new "Hannah Montana" movie.

Gratuitous sex, teen pregnancy and people getting blown up on the big screen don't seem to bother anyone these days, but two people riding in an SUV without seat belts nearly becomes a national scandal.


Then again, in today's culture -- where catching celebrities like Britney Spears or Paris Hilton doing even the smallest thing wrong, especially behind the wheel of a car, qualifies as "BREAKING NEWS!!!" -- I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

That said, though, remember to buckle up. Because riding in a moving vehicle while not wearing a seat belt can be dangerous -- especially if you're sharing the roads with the likes of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.
