In reply to: Michelle 's message, "What does "denied a crown" mean? She was named Miss Brazil and came in 2nd in the Miss Universe contest, so she did very well. Are you implying that all those who don't place first are unfairly denied a crown?" on Friday, July 10, 12:37:06pm

Lighten up, Francis ...
