The Ms. America pageant ditched the bikini competition last year.  As a result, this year it had nearly 40% fewer viewers.


Huh.


‘No bikinis? No way!’ TV audiences ditch Miss America pageant

Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it.

so, AK-1; you thought someone actually was interested in that swill based on the intellect and talent of the contestants? It's always been legalized prostitution, and always will be.

1)  A good prostitute provides a valuable service to those in need.  A service arguably more honest and valuable than what is provided by most lawyers and politicans.

2)  Local, state, national and international beauty pagent contestants are not and never have been prostitutes.

3)  Aside from admiring gorgeous young women in bikini's, I also enjoyed the rest of the show including the window into the minds of indoctrinated college students.

Watched every year, until husband died. Disappointed most years because our home states didn’t win: Hawaii, Vermont, Idaho. Until he died I also watched the Olympics. Although it distressed him, I slipped away from football, basketball, and baseball games. Despite my obvious lack of interest, he shared news of players and called me in from the kitchen or wherever to watch instant replays. Three sons and yet I had to share these moments. Funny though, how amazed he was that I could later bring them up in a conversation. It was like, wow, your mind isn’t impenetrable after all. Golf was his retirement game of choice and I gave a year of my life to the local league of women golfers. As much as he loved the game, he couldn’t stand to see it played poorly, and his constant pointers drove me off the course. When I played with son3 or my daughter, I actually enjoyed the game. Lost track of what the thread was about......bikini competition was the best for determining the beauty of Miss America’s figure. One piece suits can hide significant flaws. I stopped wearing them in my late thirties and one piece suits did wonders.
