The Boy Scouts
« on: January 24, 2019, 04:55:44 PM »
It appears that today is the birthday of the start of the Boy Scouts.  Robert Baden Powell got it going with his book on January 24, 1908. 

While they are a troubled organization today they did a lot of good for a lot years.

Under duress, they still do, but all of the present day changes to the organization have done them no good that I can see. :-\
