Gems

Every once in a while, you come across gems. This one's picked up and cited from a book called Videocracy by Kevin Allocca.

"Partway into the national Miss Teen USA beauty pageant, ..the contestant from South Carolina was asked, "Recent polls  have shown a fifth f Americans can't locate the U.S. on a World Map. Why do you think this is?" "

The young lady's reply  "would change the course of her life. And not in a good way." She replied "I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps." 
"And, I believe that our education, like such as, in South Africa and the Iraq, everywhere, like, such as, and, I believe they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., or should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future. For our children."

A gem. Not sure if she won or lost.
