Not like this is all that unusual, but I am led to wonder if the Boy Scout/Girl Scout leaders we have today are as forthright as they were a few decades ago. I know from the fact that I have one son in Boy Scouts, that they don't seem to be teaching them the same kind of civic responsibility and personal conduct that I used to hear about in a scout. Could it be that people are going through the motions more, now? This is reprehensible, but I wonder if its part of a larger trend, in which venerable organizations are finding more and more of their members less trustworthy.
