Miss USA Crowned In Las Vegas

This year's Miss USA crown goes to Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough. She's a 25-year-old scientist with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Damn! She will now go on to compete for the title of Miss Universe. Her win however wasn't without controversy. During an interview segment, she was asked if healthcare is a right or privilege (she said privilege) and about feminisim (she doesn’t like the term ‘feminist’, she prefers the term ‘equalist.’) People were not digging that.  

The first runner-up was Miss New Jersey Chhavi Verg and the second runner-up was Meridith Gould of Minnesota.

Now we can add Jet Blue to the list of airline controversies that have popped up recently. They have been accused of kicking a family off of a flight due to the mother's 40th birthday cake.  As the story goes, Cameron Burke, his wife, Minta, and their two children were flying to Las Vegas to connect with family for a birthday celebration. They had a special cake that was first put into an overhead bin. And that’s where the two versions of the story get a little hairy. The Burkes say Cameron tried to step in when it appeared that one flight attendant went at another over the cake storage. He says that the angry employee then accused him of bad behavior, to which he replied, “Have you been drinking?”..WHOOPS! Jet Blue claims that Cameron was out of control and the video online doesn't show the full story.
