Right of passage?

Robin Givhan writes one of her signature stories on what Judith Miller and rapper L'il Kim wore to their sentencing hearings. Difficult to pull off that sort of smarmy psychologizing when you commit howlers like this:
For a performer such as Jones who has built her career on the image of gangster girls and sex queens, spending some time in prison will only add to the realism of her story line. The prison term seems less an ordeal than a right of passage.
