Subject: Guys, not sure you are fully aware of how bad it is over there. No water and electricity available forv3.5 million people. 90% of food comes from imports and the ports are destroyed. Importing was a forced trade to ensure 20% tax for US was created and people can't get cash or gas. People are beginning to die and starve with donations sitting on the tarmac without any distributions getting to remote areas. I'm sure this will become a major story because we aren't talking about a third world country. These Americans can't even get flights to relocate with family until the electrical grid is fixed which will take at least six months.

Catastrophic life threatening events shouldn't be trivialized in pageantry.

In reply to: HawtPlusSeksi 's message, "Puerto Rico will, though under IMG it needs to be presented in a clear/concise way and not over the top way a la Osmel... imagine if hurricanes were hitting Venezuela, Osmel would make up new stories all the time, that THIS or THAT GIRL lost her home/parents, etc. If it were a pre-internet era, Osmel would have stated that Mariam Habach was a Syrian refugee traumatized by conflict." on 12:16:25 09/26/17 Tue

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: Isn't pageantry as a whole about TRIVIALIZING important events? I am sorry but World peace, women's rights, natural disasters, etc have been trivialized for decades. No one wishes any more suffering on Puerto Rico nor anywhere else in the Caribbean. However, you can BET that the issue of hurricanes such as Maria, Irma, etc.. will be front and stage and WILL BE TRIVIALIZED, because that is what the current direction of MU ogr. and the owners want and are looking for... it is implicitly encouraged by the organization, partly because of ratings and more attention on the pageants (ie: more money as a result).
