On the day the Green Bay Packers play the Giants, a 23 year old cheesehead from Kenosha, WI has enough to celebrate. Laura Kaeppeler is the new Miss America. None of us follow pageants as much as we used to when Bert Parks officiated, but its still a way to celebrate beauty and talent in a non-salacious way. With the more soft core TV events like Victoria's Secret, Miss America seems quaint.
Remember the scandal when Vanessa Williams, whom I met when she became Miss NY at the pageant in Watertown, got the boot for smooching with another girl ?
Now in NY, she could marry the woman and no one would blink.
