Political Correctness and the Farm Queen

Last night we did our podcast at the Howard County Fair. Our first guest was Tess Gavigan, the 2010 Farm Bureau. That’s right; Tess is this years “Farm Bureau.”

Up until about 2006, the Howard County Fair had a Farm Queen but in this age of political correctness the queen title has relegated to the dust bin of political incorrectness and replaced with a bureau. Call me old fashioned but I think this is ridiculous. Even Tess lamented the fact that she doesn’t get a crown like her predecessors did.

I’m with her. Tess is a lovely young lady who has a passion for animals and is a self described country girl. In my book she is more of a queen than a farm bureau.

All in all it was a great night at the fair and we had lots of fun with the various vendors and exhibitors. There are still two more days to head to West Friendship and perhaps check out a deep fried Oreo, but if you go visit the animals, be sure to watch your step.
