Pageant Queens Gone Wild

The blog has been a little on the boring side lately...I'm gonna have to do something to ramp up the excitement a bit.

For starters, how about this piece from this week's Las Vegas Weekly, about the recent spate of Pageant Queens Gone Wild, including the former Ms. Nevada, Katie Rees, whose real-life sinful behavior can be lamped here. All's I know is, people didn't party this way when I was 17. Not in Northeast Ohio, anyway.

Northeast Ohio? What part? I grew up in Warren, meself, but the family got out of the collapsing steel industry in '70, like Lando escaping the Death Star.

Unbelievable! I actually lived in Warren from '76 to '85! Well, technically, anyway...we were on the outskirts ( I went to school in Newton Falls), but our mailing address said Warren! My dad worked downtown for Ohio Edison. In early '86 we moved to Stow (near Akron) and that's where I went to high school.

It's crazy how small the world is, ain't it?

I know what you mean. When I was at Chapel Hill in 1982, I came across someone's diary pages left in the library. It was a long agonizing account of his childhood and eventual coming out, and near the end, mentioned that he grew up in Warren.

This would be even creepier if I had moved to Chapel Hill when I left Ohio for NC back in 1995, rather than Greensboro (the house there was nicer). Still weird.
