Last week I asked if a 17 year old was too young to be Miss America, and 72% of you think just that. I agree. The funny thing is, I don’t really have any “facts” to back that up with, it’s just my gut feeling. I will be honest, I was fairly selfish and self-centered at 17, and I can’t imagine having to do all of the things a Miss America is supposed to do at that age. However, maybe I was just an immature brat. Not completely out of the realm of possibility, I’m afraid.
Today, I wanted to point you to a fascinating discussion going on over at BoingBoing and find out what your views are on the topic, which come from an article written by pediatrician Rahul K. Parikh on CNN.
