the gravity of paris

If you despair that normal rules don't seem to apply to the very rich, take heart in the fact that this doesn't always work to their advantage, for I can not imagine how the laws of gravity you and I live with made this happen:

from a press report:
[Paris] Hilton was arrested inside the Wynn resort, where a police lieutenant reported a small plastic bag containing 0.8 grams of cocaine fell into his hand when Hilton reached for a tube of lip balm in a purse.

Somehow that (alleged) bag fell up from her purse, fell horizontally out the window of the automobile in the hotel parking lot she was sitting in, and then continued to fall straight into the hand of the officer who was outside the car testing her boyfriend for DUI at the time.
