It is interesting that two persons who have benefited from the B.S.A.'s
"relaxing" their standards have such opposing view points!
Meaning, when "Boy" Scouting was first established, it was for boys
only. A couple of decades back, the B.S.A. woke up (at least partially)
and started admitting girls.
Did it weaken the program? Or did it expand it? I guess it is for each
of us to decide then accept (at least for a little while longer).
Sorry to stir this already mixed pot. . .
