    I used to slavishly watch the Miss America pageants growing up but by 1964 my senses got the better of me and I was pretty much listening to black radio stations in Detroit rather than watching Miss America warble through a Broadway show tune.

    I was very familiar with the haircare products that Miss America pushes here.

    I love that all the poor runners-up got was a portable hairdryer. I got a very similar one the 1st day of Hanukkah that year, and I didn’t have to do all that training or slim down to stuff myself into a bathing suit.
