Media gives Scouting a black eye

Just watched the evening news about a man killing 15
Kindergarten kids in Scotland. Can not accurately remember
all the details so I am not able to give you very much
information. It seems that the killer was an ex-scout
leader that had been asked to leave the program. Many of
the details are still unknown. My heart goes out to all the
dead and injured children (and families). The national
television news (I don't remember which network) gave a
fairly objective presentation, but I am wondering how many
newspaper headlines tomorrow will read:
"Scout Leader and Petaphile(sp) kills Children"
If there is already a thread started on this topic, I
apologize as I am in "Digest Mode".
