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.

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.

Subject: Having never judged a state pageant, I really wasn't aware that on the final night of competition, that criteria for fulfilling the job description and duties of the title came into play when the judges scored talent. I think this is where a big problem lies within the state and national judging process. So, does this mean that if a contestant was a 6 in talent, but the judges felt that overall she would do an excellent job as Miss State or Miss America, that they would give her a 9 or 10? This would definitely explain why a contestant in the top 10 with an excellent talent may not advance if the judge feels she'd make a lousy overall titleholder. To me, I think with this critieria in place, it would be very difficult to score talent. Why don't they just continue to score each category on it's own merit, and use the final ballot for determining who is best qualified for the job.
