BEAUTY PAGEANTS

From Body in Mind:

We hope you got a good look at the smiling, cheerful, exuberantly beautiful Miss Indonesia during Sunday night's Miss Universe pageant - because if an Islamic group in her country gets their way, she'll be spending the next 2-6 years in jail just for being there. (BodyInMind.com, 07/25/06.)
