It's probably tasteless to blame the parents, but I do. Sorry, but putting a five-year-old in all that makeup and these outfits, sexualizing a child, is completely immoral. People who abuse and exploit children have their own frighteningly complex methods of finding targets; you don't have to throw up a neon sign and make it easy for them.

I figured this Carr guy wasn't guilty as soon as I saw CNN doing a split-screen and pointing out, in topical fashion, that he "even looks like Lee Harvey Oswald". Seriously, if there isn't enough relevant information to relay without having to stoop to this level of absurd time-filling, there ain't too much meat on that particular bone.

So why weren't OTHER kids in these pagents murdered as well? I get your point, but one really doesn't have anything to do with the other.

I don't know about immoral, but it is definitely creepy. HBO produced a documentary on the whole child beauty pageant "phenomenon" that really worth checking out:

Living Dolls: The Making of a Child Beauty Queen (IMDB)

I've caught this a couple of times, and it is just bizarre. Some of these parents seem more interested in winning than the kids. And these things aren't cheap, either.
