If you have missed the last few days of Calvin and Hobbs cartoons, I urge
you to take a look. The gist is that the family went on a trip and Hobbs
got left behind. When they returned the house had been broken into and
Calvin couldn't find Hobbs. The mother says that they probably wouldn't have
taken Hobbs since he wasn't valuable. In the last panel Calvin is sitting
there with tears in his eyes saying "I thought he was valuable."
Wendy Theriault's posting about her son's concern with "hammock camping"
reminded me that we should not discount something because we do not
consider it valuable or important. From the Scout's point of view it may
mean the difference between enjoying Scouts and looking for a different
