If you missed the Miss Universe pageant, Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, was just crowned the champion.
Normally, I would make up some funny Navy joke and insert it here, but Miss Culpo’s talent is playing the cello. And the US Navy stopped accepting cellists into our ranks back when we had our last wood shortage in March of 1794. Is it a coincidence that this ship, still in service today, was commissioned that very month? Old Ironsides must of taken a lot of wind instruments to build. On a breezy day, you can still hear Vivaldi’s Four Seasons blowin’ through her sails.
Ms. Olivia Culpo, a Boston University sophomore (home to the USS Constitution), probably knows this better than us.
