We try to be a full service news site, so we feel obliged to cover events like the Miss America pageant. Say what you will, it is still one of the most-watched television programs of the year, mostly by women and girls. Miss Florida won this year, and I am sure she has wonderful intellectual attainments, but those are hard to portray visually. So here are a few photos of her from a more tangible point of view.
Years ago I had a friend who was a beauty pageant contestant. Her sister, if I remember correctly, was Miss USA, and the two of them wrote a how-to book on beauty pageants, for contestants. It is still, as far as I know, the only such book on the market. It has been eagerly snapped up by a new generation of young women eager to learn how to compete in this somewhat odd but ever-popular arena. My friend, who is a lawyer, enjoyed immensely the political incorrectness of it all. And so do I.
