I know I'm really late on this, but I just have to quickly weigh in on the Miss Utah controversy.
During the interview portion of the Miss USA pageant, Marisa Powell gave a barely coherent answer relating to the pay gap, smiling sheepishly in the middle of her answer as if acknowledging that she knows she sounds like an idiot. America skewered her for it.
I would just like to say, Marisa Powell, that I feel ya. I sound like this every time I talk to anyone. Which is why I write.
I commend you.
