Maybe We Should Throw More Money at Our Public Education System

I didn't see this live, but apparently Miss Teen South Carolina gave the following answer during the finals of the Miss Teen USA contest:

For those of you who didn't get all of that, here's a loose transcript:

Also, if she could lunch with any one person, dead or alive, it would be Lauren Hutton. No, I couldn't even make that up.

Let's hope for Miss Upton's sake that she has a Garmin to find her lunch with Lauren Hutton. Lord knows that she can't trust those daggone map thingies...
