I can't believe I'm about to give more airtime to this

Okay, I think the Miss Teen USA pageant is retahded. Just another advertising conduit via skinny, barely legal, single, half-dressed, big-boobed blonds. Not exactly good for growing girls or very original (except that people seem to forget the fact they are watching one giant commercial).

What is more, it irritates me to no end that US citizens are obtuse when it comes to world affairs and geography.

Today's subject, Miss Teen South Carolina, is the epitome of the above. Here is her revised answer. Though I had high hopes for something different, intelligent even, her new answer falls the way of the predictable: safe, rehearsed and boring.

I personally also believe in her US American idea why some people such as, do not have maps. Our education in the Iraq should help South Africa build up a future for us, such as.

Poor geography lessons may be a problem with our education, but her answer illustrates an even more severe problem: Our education system does not teach critical thinking

"The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically . . . The complete education gives one not only power of concentration but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate." -MLK Jr.
