Dead Rev Sees 104 Years into Future!

From the Kansas City Star of January 3, 2008:

A law school student and former beauty queen who has posed for a racy calendar while brandishing a weapon has been accused of kidnapping, biting and threatening a former boyfriend with a handgun.

Kumari Fulbright, 25, who is midway through her second year in law school, faces a long prison term if convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated robbery and two counts of aggravated assault.

From the Reverend Thomas B. Gregory’s letter to the New York American of April 23, 1904, protesting plans to send several Kansas City girls to a “beauty show” at the St. Louis Exposition:

Imagine a really refined and innocent young girl sitting upon a platform at a great exposition to be gazed at and ogled and discussed and commented upon by the great mixed multitude…No truly refined young girl would submit to such a thing. She would rather die than be subjected to such vulgar publicity. The bare thought of it would drive her mad.

My older sister entered her first and last beauty contest in the sixth grade. The contest was based on who could get the most pennies collected in jars left at various places in town. When the butt ugly daughter of the biggest oil distributor in town won the contest, my sister vowed to never, ever enter another beauty contest.

Instead she became a college professor with a PH.D. She figured out how beauty contests worked early on.
