Back on August 24th, the Girls Scouts of America were quite upset

I wrote about this fuss back then. They were right! Today, the Boy Scouts of America announced that, 'due to demand' they are now opening their ranks to girls. I would not be surprised to see the Girl Scouts file suit for alienation of affection or something. Some say that the Boy Scouts are doing this because they are losing members and fear for their survival. I would not be surprised if this is true. I voiced the opinion, back in August, that they should leave well enough alone. Girls thrive in non-competitive situations and the boys try to take over. Now, the Boy Scouts have admitted they are after the girls too. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Were you a Boy Scout or a Girl Scout? I was neither. May the best Scout win!

I wondering if there can be an amicable way to resolve this in a way that both come out winners and ensure their survival. Why don't they merge together into one organization, and just call it Scouting or Scouts or something like that. Then they can both keep their individual troops, but meet together on the same nights for group activities before splitting off into boys and girls to do separate activities. On weekend adventures, boys can partake in girls adventures and girls can partake in boys adventures. Or something like that. If both sides truly want what's best for their organization, they will find a way to work closely together as one unit.
