Hi posters!

So I guess this is kind of an experiment, but it's one I think is worthwhile and could be really interesting.

This is not just about the book, although you're free to ask me about it. In fact, you can ask me anything you like. I imagine Pageant Guru is around here somewhere in case things really go off the rails; in general, though, I want it to be an open discussion.

I could say more (in fact, I've written and rewritten and ultimately deleted another paragraph about three times), but I think it's better just to throw the doors wide open.

Have at it. And thanks for coming by!

It's interesting that Mr. Haskell wrote this in his book about leaving the Morris Agency....

"Just as I had watched the cancer that had moved through my mother's body destroy her strength, her confidence, and her resolve, I now witnessed the slow but deliberate destruction of a world that meant so much not only to me, but to hundreds of my associates."

That is exactly how so many disaffected people feel about the way the MAO is being run.

It seems that the same group of girls makes the top each year. This year after attending prelims and the final show, I have my own list of girls who I thought could have made the Top 15 that I was shocked didn't! Who do you guys think got "politically" taken out of the running?

I just got handed a pageant that is failing miserably. It is not associated with any national organization nor does it have a real theme or cause that it promotes. I would love to have a legacy for this pageant and have it be one of those pageants that the mother wins as a teenager and then 20 years later her daughter wins it. Miss America has a legacy so I figured this would be a place that I could get some ideas from. So any suggestions on how to build my pageant up? Get girls interested in it and make it a pageant where local girls want to compete in it every year. Just like the Miss National Peanut Festival pageant or the Miss Hoopsten pageant. I need a niche for my pageant. I would love it to be like a training ground for our Miss America State so I defiantly want to do charity appearances with my queens but any ideas you guys might have would be great. Thank you

I see so many comments about wanting to pick winners that the TV audience understands. But why? What has the TV audience done for the pageant lately?
I'll admit that some of the winners have probably been headscratchers for the general public. But the general public doesn't stew over it for a year, they might giggle about it the next day to someone else who watched the pageant but that's as far as it goes.
So why the obsession with what the public thinks when the public hasn't cared in probably 30 years?

Subject: Action all of us can take now! I spoke to a couple of legal buddies of mine and gave the run down of all that is going on with MAO. They suggested that letters be written to the NJ attorney general or Secretary of State asking for a fraud investigation of the governance and financial issues related to MAO, salaries, Sam's half a million gift and the CMN relationship. They also said write to the fraud non profit division of the IRS asking for the same investigation. Of both MAP and CMN. They thought something was rotten in and those who protect the public who donate should get involved. I will be writing. If we flood both agencies with letters we can get some answers.
