With growing disappointment, I listened to Louise Story introduce the piece about the Boy Scouts "re-inventing" themselves. I understand the focus was on Marcos Nava's laudable efforts to bring more Hispanic youth into the organization, but to let the talk about "kids wanting to have fun" go unchallenged, without any mention of the BSA's policy concerning gays reduced what could have been an interesting discussion about "re-invention" into fluff. Louise, gay kids want to have fun, too.
