The Funniest Thing I've Read In Ages

From Walter Scott's Personality Parade in today's Parade Magazine:

Q. In June, Lindsay Lohan signed on for extended care at Promises, a luxury rehab center in Malibu. Isn’t that really just an extended vacation?
—N.B., Washington, D.C.

A. No. Lohan, 21—who abused alcohol, pills and cocaine—seems committed to finally getting clean. “The longer people stay, the better their chances,” says Promises founder Richard Rogg. “This is a very serious 12-step program. No one should be penalized for choosing to do the hard work of recovery in a luxurious setting.”

Interestingly, if you go to Parade's website, there's this, uh, addendum:

Editor’s Note: Less than two weeks after leaving rehab--and after we went to press with the July 29 edition of “Personality Parade”--Lindsay Lohan was arrested for drunken driving and cocaine possession. Like many in Hollywood and elsewhere, we believed that Lindsay was taking her rehab seriously. This latest incident is an example of how difficult substance abuse can be.
