Trump to Miss USA: Your're Fired!

Tara Conner, Miss USA has been kicked out of her NYC apartment in the Trump Towers. The Donald who is a part owner of the Miss USA beauty pageant as well as the other partners have not been amused by reports of her wild partying, sex, and drug abuse. Miss California, the runner-up is getting ready to take over the Miss USA title.

I can't help but wonder what is it with these beauties like Paris, Brittany, and Lindsay. They have it all - beauty, wealth, fame - and they squander their lives away in debauchery. I can't help but think of Susan Polgar (her blog is to the right), the chess champion who had to scrape and fight for everything she got and when she got to the top, she used her fame to make a difference for good.

The story of Tara Conner is a story of opportunities squandered.
Update Dec 19: Trump gave her a second chance. Big tearful press conference today
