I'll miss Miss America

You know I loves me my beauty pageants. Watching the Miss America pageant has been a tradition in our house for years.

Miss America is all about tradition, including that song right after she is crowned....

..."There she is....Miss America..."

Nope. Not this year. Come September there will be no Miss America song sung. In its place, well, they don't know yet. All they know is that lawyers have gotten involved. You see there's a licensing issue and federal lawsuit involving the original writer's widow.

So legal issues will take away a tradition dating back to Bert Parks. It's a shame. Maybe they'll replace the song with a new and fresh hip-hop version. I can't wait to hear it. NOT.
