Last September 12, 2011, the new Miss Universe was crowned. The pageant, run by Donald Trump’s organization, was live from Sao Paolo, Brazil and aired on NBC. I happen to know one of the preliminary judges, Scott Lazerson. Lazerson has been in involved with philanthropy for years, and he is also a “professional connector,” which means he pretty much knows everyone, as I wrote in my profile, What Famous Friends Are For.
