    Post The End of Miss America

    This is an interesting story about the demise of the Miss America Pageant. I remember watching this as a kid and being enthralled. Sad.

    Let's not forget Ohio's Back to Back Champion, Mary Katherine Campbell, Miss America 1922 and 1923 -- (Take that Archie Griffin):

    Let's not also forget Ohio's back to back championships in 62 and 63 --

    A line from the article....

    You aren’t supposed to call Miss America a pageant. Instead, it’s a competition for scholarships.
    ...made me think of this Letterman interview with Kelly Cash in 1986.

    Arizona...the only state in the country where rain is considered a state of emergency.
