So, who are your standouts from last night? For me, definitely Rachel Wyatt winning SC. I also love that Laura Lee Lewis finally won MS. Seems she's been competing for years. What did the rest of you think of the state pageant results?

They are very telling! Some girls communicate beautifully, some are just so-so, and some have a long way to go to be Miss A-ready. Who do you think looks ready to go?

I'm not in to all the gossip and past history, but I'm assuming that they are there? I see Kira is hosting, but maybe Claire and Mallory can't participate because they have clients competing??

So, I donated to the CMN accounts to several girls in my state to help them meet the goal for competing at the next level. I did not receive any type of acknowledgement of this from any of them. I did this not only to help CMN, but because I also know of the expense required to compete at state, and I thought this could be some way that I could help them out. Is this typical that girls don't at least acknowledge this, even if it's an e-mail reply, as you're required to give your e-mail address when you make a donation. For girls that are suppose to be role models for doing the right thing, this doesn't seem very right to me.

Subject: Well I guess I am behind, but I just read an article on line about Atlantic City probably defaulting on its debt this weekend. It says the revenue in the city has reached the point of being so bad that Atlantic City is expected to file for bankruptcy very soon. This would certainly explain wht they were suddenly so welcoming when the Pageant came back from Las Vegas. With an economy like that, any tourists, even the few thousand that Miss Maerica brings to town for a week, is better than having no one at all. Maybe its time for Miss America to say farewell to Atlantic City once and for all and move to a city where it would be welcomed and supported---say Nashville, Dallas, Atlanta, or Oklahoma City. Thoughts?

With all the issues this pageant has, MAO is led by a nasty and catty little self-promoter still has the time to divert into things that do not matter. An example is all the effort he has devoted into sabotaging DEFINE, much less all the other consultants he has decided he does not like. Though I have no skin in that game, that alone defines what is wrong with his pageant.

The brand is dying. Though there may be some issues with the current girl's marketability, it's doubtful that this team would succeed with a budding superstar. The focus of the brand identity is gone, there is a rotating door in terms of sponsors, and sentiment aside , what organization with any future, chooses to join itself at the hip to Atlantic City?

Then there is the question of television ratings. Though it's admirable that ABC has allowed the pageant to buy time on a dead ratings night, you have to wonder who Sam can apologize to this year to pump up the ratings? In order to bring relevance to Miss America , it's leadership needs to be semi-receptive to all that has happened in the 21st century. That goes beyond posting selfies during the national broadcast. It means some focus on a platform component that is truly spoken of. It means seeking out contestants that are great communicators, able to project them selves adequately in speaking engagements and broadcast television.

Finally there are the optics of how things are done. There have been serious issues and abuses in many state organization. There has been a conscious effort to 'pay back" folks like Kate Shindle and Mallory Hagan for going rogue, and much less known attempts at economic retaliation against long respected figures like Valerie Clemons. The business relationship between CMN and MAO is south of transparent. The business of scholarships is well documented. The purging of hundreds of strong supporters in the volunteer ranks has decimated the grass roots of this program.

There is a culture of arrogance and cynicism towards any person or idea that might just help. Even uttering an unapproved thought, will buy it's author a blackball. That in and of itself is a recipe for disaster when things are going well. By every measure, things are not going well. In order to save this program, there needs to be leadership that is transparent, accountable, and competent. Instead we have this nasty little man, with his inexperienced and incompetent staff, and enabled by a stacked board of directors, who has forgotten the meaning of the term fiduciary responsibility.
