June 5, 2018: a Landmark Paradigm Shift in US Culture (Edward Jajko, USA, 06/11/18 1:03 am)

On June 8, David Duggan noted landmark events in US military history that occurred in the first week of June (to which I would have added the June 8 anniversary of the unanswered attack on the USS Liberty).

I would like to note another black day in American history, June 5, on which it was announced by the Miss America Organization that the swimsuit competition will no longer be part of the show. We can expect more inane answers to equally inane questions about world peace.

This month will also bring the first scratch-and-sniff US postage stamps, believe it or not, in a series depicting various ice cream treats.

Who says there ain't any American Exceptionalism? USA! USA!

JE comments:  Further, the Miss America Organization (wouldn't that be MAO?) says that contestants will no longer be judged on looks.  Perhaps I can enter this year?  I'm full of poise.  Now all I need is talent.

Yes Ma'am, times are a' changing.

Our destination today, Colombia, is probably the most pageant-crazy nation on earth.  I'll ask people for their opinions on MAO's latest cultural revolution.
