Miss USA Crown Goes To Connecticut Contestant

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The country's newest Miss USA is leaving a white collar job behind for the glamour and excitement that goes with her new role - and she can't wait. Moments after she was crowned at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday, Connecticut accountant Erin Brady said all she could think about was letting her bosses know she won't be coming in tomorrow. Or ever again. As her family and fiancee looked on, Brady beat out other beauties from every U.S. state and Washington D.C. to take the title, accepting the crown from outgoing queen Miss Maryland Nana Meriwether.
