Every so often (read, once very 4 or 5 years) I do a web search for the lyrics of a song a counselor taught us at Girl Scout camp in 1980. I have finally tracked down the original.

Someone on my Facebook page is posting crap like "If you check the old medical manuals, measles etc. used to be 'benign childhood illnesses' merely needing rest and supportive care - before there were vaccines to sell, with billions of dollars in the offing."

Have unfriended with extreme prejudice.* But without making any comments to her about it, so score one for being reasonably adult. But not without vaguebooking about it on FB and here (post-unfriending!) so minus points for not being adult enough.

(she's someone I see periodically in daily life...if she mentions something about not seeing any FB updates anymore, I shall have to figure out how to deflect the subject.)

Yes! It's the Miss Universe National Costume Competition!

Miss Canada FTW! You can never have too many hockey sticks in a gown.

Miss Dominican Republic has the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child on her gown, and is dressed as Mary, Queen of Heaven.

I have no idea what Miss Ireland is dressed as.

I approve of Miss Thailand Myanmar (misidentified in the press). She brought weapons.

edit: The Daily FMail has some that aren't on ONTD. Miss Japan, for example, who is rocking the Sexy Samurai look.
