How not to win the Miss America contest

(Via NRO blog.) Crystal Wosik, Miss Nevada 2005 (right in photo)

Contestants for the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas, Nev., were subjected to the usual pre-pageant interviews by the panel of judges. The questions are apparently directed toward issues pertinent to the interviewee's state. Miss Nevada, a fetching 23-year-old blonde named Crystal Wosik, was asked about the Yucca Mountain repository for spent nuclear fuel, a sore point for anti-nuclear activists in Nevada. Replied the winsome Ms. Wosik, perhaps driven by an excess of pride in her home state: "It has to go some place, and that was the best-built facility in the country." But what if people die? asked the flabbergasted judges. Replied the lady: "We just have to take one for the team."
