    But I'm assuming they get payed well to do the Risque stuff right?

    Usually, though too often it's "let me take these pictures and then I'll see what we can do" type things

    Re: Dearborn's Miss Michigan wins Miss USA pageant

    I didn't see the competition, so I can't judge whether or not she deserved to win, but I have a few observations based on what I have read about this.

    1. She is absolutely beautiful. I don't care what her heritage it or her religion. She is a beautiful young lady. That is something that you can't take away from her.

    2. The fact that she is Lebenese-American is not a big deal to me at all. I am from a state where the best known political family is Lebanese-American. The elder Sununu was former governor and Chief of Staff for President George H.W. Bush while the younger Sununu was a U.S. Senator and before that a Member of Congress.

    3. There was her statement, as reported in the media, about birth control. On the one hand, I absolutely agree with where she was going with it. However, remember Carrie Prejean's stance for morality? The left went ballistic over her statements. Is it that the left believes that it is ok to go after a blonde beauty over a raven-haired Arab beauty (frankly, the later is more my type)?

    4. In the statement in point 3, she referred to birth control as a "controlled substance?" Huh? Does she have any idea what a controlled substance is?

    5. She clearly stumbled over her gown while walking. I don't know in what context this was, but it if was during competition, surely she should have been docked points for that.

    Still, on the whole, I wish her well. I can see why the Dearborn Arab-American community is proud of her -- they should be. She seems confident and is extremely beautiful. I hope she does not face negative ramifications from extreme elements for pursuing her American dream.

    Maybe they should just not do that crap especially if they're competing in pageants. If you were going to police academy, would you smoke crack on your day off? Like it or not, virtuous living is a hallmark of pageant standards.

    I'm by no means a pageant girl (see virtuous standards lol), but out of a personal sense of deceny (I said personal, not everyone's code) I turned down several offers to pose nude in college. The money would have been great, but my pride wasn't for sale.

    I'm just responding to your point. The clothed pole dancing doesn't bother me. However, young women need to realize they can be beautiful and sexy without lowering themselves to act out like sluts in public.

    To clarify, it's not posing nude or anything close to that. I mean things that a prudish person wouldn't want a 14 year old to look at, but nothing that you wouldn't see in a trendy fashion mag.

    From what I saw, she didn't do anything worse that I have seen videos of Miley Cyrus (aka hannah montana) doing...

    Miley Cyrus is 17 years old.
    She's a performer, who has been working hard nearly all her life.
    Whether or not one thinks she's talented or likes her type of music is a matter of personal opinion.
    What makes you think it's appropriate to call her "trash"?
    Why is she "trash"? Because she's got a rich daddy?
    What has she ever done to deserve to be called that?

    There is a thread on Topix "I hate Miley Cyrus" It has about 25,000 posts on it saying how much they hate Miley Cyrus.

    Most of the posters are very young but it has some of the grossest insults I have ever heard. Most of them think she is a slut.
