    New York, NY (PRWeb) February 19, 2007 -- www.actionagainstobesity.com -- As America's child and adult obesity figures rise, National Action Against Obesity (NAAO), calls for a boycott of the reported $700 million in Girl Scout Cookies sold annually. Profiting off cookies -- it's the wrong message, the wrong product and the wrong era. Girl Scouts have an economic, medical and moral imperative to dump junk food as their $700 million fundraising source.

    NEW YORK - New York police have ticketed a man they say set up a table on a Brooklyn sidewalk to sell Girl Scout cookies without a license. advertisement But the suspect’s 13-year-old daughter disputes the account and says her father was only helping her deliver pre-ordered cookies in the neighborhood.

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Pro-life advocates thought the battle was over when the Texas Bluebonnet Council of the Girl Scouts severed ties with Planned Parenthood, ending a decade of support for the abortion business' programs for youth and clergy. That changed when Kathy Cloninger, CEO of the Girl Scouts of America, appeared on NBC's "Today" show Friday morning to discuss the boycott. "The Girl Scouts in Waco, Texas, really made a decision based on local community context, they decided that in this particular situation that it would be in the best interest of girls and their families to discontinue the...

    Crime-scene photo unsettling to some 01/25/2003 By JACQUIELYNN FLOYD / The Dallas Morning News The large photograph that appeared in Friday's paper - the trade argot is "centerpiece art" - gave rise to a lot of discussion by virtue of having had a dead person in it.

One of the apparent burglars died in the apartment, and the other collapsed and died outside. A photographer for The Dallas Morning News captured what is...
