    The Miss America contest is ... the most perfectly rendered theater in our culture, for it so perfectly captures what we yearn for: a low-class ritual, a polished restatement of vulgarity, that wants to open the door to high-class respectability by way of plain middle-class anxiety and ambition.
    Gerald Early (b. 1952)

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
