First Miss America Pageant

September 7, 1921

The “Inner-City Beauty” pageant is won by 16-year-old Margaret Gorman (Miss Washington, D.C.). The contest was judged on 50% audience applause and 50% judges’ decision after a day of mingling with the contestants. A newspaperman coined the term “Miss America” for the winner and the following year it became known as the Miss America Pageant, with Gorman declared as the first Miss America. She is the youngest ever winner. Her measurements were 30-25-32.

The Man Who Prevented World War III

Stanislav Petrov

Born September 7, 1939 d. 2017

Soviet soldier. After preventing World War III, he was reprimanded for disobeying orders. Stanislav Petrov was the duty officer at a Soviet early-warning system when the system reported that up to six Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles had been launched from the United States. This was in 1983, just three weeks after the Soviet military had shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007 killing all 269 people aboard, including U.S. Congressman Larry McDonald and many other Americans. Petrov believed it might be a false alarm and disobeyed orders by not reporting the attack to his superiors. He feared that had he reported the attack, his superiors would have launched a retaliatory nuclear attack, leading to an all out nuclear war. Later analysis showed that the detection system had malfunctioned and it was indeed a false alarm. Petrov was reprimanded for not correctly documenting the incident.

“Just as there is a very short distance between the U.S. and Cuba, there is a very short distance between a democracy and a dictatorship where the government gets to decide what to do, how to think, and how to live.

And sometimes your freedom is not taken away at gunpoint, but instead it is done one piece of paper at a time, one seemingly meaningless rule at a time, one small silencing at a time.

Never allow the government – or anyone else – to tell you what you can or cannot believe or what you can and cannot say or what your conscience tells you to have to do or not do.”

– Armando Valladares, Cuban poet, diplomat, and human rights activist.

Iran Inches Closer to a Nuclear Bomb

It is not true that the dangers to the maintenance of peace, democracy, freedom, and capitalism are a result of a “revolt of the masses.” They are an achievement of scholars and intellectuals, of sons of the well-to-do, of writers and artists pampered by the best society. In every country of the world dynasties and aristocrats have worked with the socialists and interventionists against freedom. – Ludwig Von Mises (1889-1973) Austrian economist.
