  1. Raised my eyebrows too, though I bowed out of scouting around Webelos. The entire militarization of the police and now the scouts is disconcerting and worrisome.

  2. The Scouts vs. the Terrorists. It sort of reminds of the time we were have a big discussion about the ins and outs of the laws of armed conflict with our flight training instructor, “we” being a bunch of nascent medical officers. He finally sighed and explained, “Look, if the base is being overrun, and the infantry couldn’t stop them, and the security forces couldn’t stop them…frankly, a bunch of doctors and nurses aren’t going to turn the tide.”
    Maybe we can give the scouts a pass on the war on terror and let them enjoy childhood a bit longer.
