while I was not a particularly good Boy Scout [don't think I made it past second class, or whatever they called it] I still remember lessons I learned or should have learned at the time. it has been 40 years.

the Boy Scouts are a fine organization that should be supported. I continue to do so to this day.

long live Scouting.

Savage is right.

Agree.....My close friend is a school commissioner so I'll ask her if they are getting this heat here also.

In case people forgot...

DEMOCRATIC DELEGATES BOO THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
Valerie Richardson
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
August 18, 2000

LOS ANGELES -- When Gloria Johnson learned that a group of
Eagle Scouts was about to take the stage at the Democratic
National Convention, she immediately went into action.

She and other California delegates grabbed poster board and
markers and made signs that read, "We Support Gay Boy
Scouts." As the uniformed Scouts took part in the opening
ceremony, the delegates, seated in the front of the hall,
waved their signs — and booed.

Under normal circumstances, jeering at children is the sort
of behavior that might get a delegate sanctioned, if not
booted from the convention altogether. But anyone who
expected the Democratic leadership to scold the Boy Scouts
of America bashers is attending the wrong convention.
