ezs note:  Well, now, let me see.  Do girls belong in the Boy Scouts?

in 1909:  no
in 2000:  well... no... not really...
But this is 2017, pal.  If they feel that strongly, they do belong.  Unless Donald Trump is your Scout leader.  In that case, maybe boys and girls should stay out of the troop.  It would be so much better that way.

"When the youth of America gets together, amazing things happen.  College campuses were once a hotbed of political activity.  Students in the '60s were responsible for great changes, politically and socially.  The youth movement launched and defined what we've become since the '60. I would like to see that happen again."
