From the Show Me State

In Rocket Man’s absence, reader James Phillips reports:

Miss Missouri was crowned as Miss USA last night. Shandi Finnessey is, of course, quite beautiful. Better yet, she is a Republican. From Reuters:
“A Republican, she told Reuters she would use her position to help explain America’s involvement in Iraq. “What needed to be done had to be done,” she said.
All that, and brains too? Golly.

We trust that Rocket Man will be back on his beat by the time Ms. Finnessey competes for the Miss Universe crown on June 1 in Quito, Ecuador. The Reuters story is “Missouri author, musician named Miss USA.” God bless America! (Thanks also to reader Richard Vatsaas.)
DEACON adds: I’m not liking Ms. Finnessey’s chances at the Miss Universe pageant in Quito unless she changes party affiliation, and her line on Iraq, quickly.
