  •  as a youngster, i was in the scouts, (0+ / 0-)

    from cub scouts through boy scouts. while i never made eagle, i had a great time, and learned a lot. i still have both hands, because the scouts taught me the proper use and care of an axe.

    unfortunately, i fear the BSA, with its continued insistence on overt discrimination, will not survive in the long run. yeah, i know, in the long run, we'll all be dead. however, in the meantime, it would be a good thing, i think, for both the BSA, and those boys who would benefit from being a part of it, but won't, because their parents (like us) will not allow them to join, for the BSA to reconsider its position.

    the girl scouts don't seem to have this problem, and they're going stronger than ever. perhaps, the boys should give some thought to following the girl's lead.
