Miss America's New Gig

What’s a former Miss America doing on Broadway? Waiting tables. Miss America 1998 Kate Shindle, an aspiring actress, is working at Artie’s, a New York deli at 82nd and Broadway. It’s a long way from the Atlantic City, N.J., runway, her six-figure salary as Miss America and daily appearances with the crown. Shindle, 22, said she doesn’t mind. “There’s no such thing as too much humility,” she told the Associated Press. “When someone’s yelling at me that the pastrami’s not hot enough, it’s got to be good for the soul.”
