No Crystle Ball

From some nonsense I was reading yesterday:
Miss Texas, Crystle Stewart, was crowned Miss USA 2008 and will now go on to the finals of the Miss Universe pageant in Vietnam in July.
If we go back forty years, 1968 was the year of the Tet Offensive, Khe San, and My Lai in Vietnam.

From the madness chronicled in Michael Herr's Dispatches, to the madness of Miss Universe in four decades. Who would even dare to imagine such a thing?
