Oh, the glamour

I suppose it's quite a positive, progressive sign that coverage of beauty pageants has been relegated to the 'In Brief' column. But I hardly expected things to go downhill so fast:

Aucklander Katie Taylor, 22, will represent New Zealand at the Miss Universe competition in August in the Bahamas.

She was selected from 15 competitors at the Miss Universe New Zealand contest in Levin on Saturday.

Levin local Priyani Puketapu, 18, was the first runner-up.

"...the Miss Universe New Zealand contest in Levin." That gives me a warm glow inside.
