Thanks for the links! Really liked "Helping My Son Choose Between the Cub Scouts and His Beliefs about God." My parents didn't let me join Girl Scouts because it's Christian and we're Jewish, and I always resented that, but maybe they did kind of have a point. Sadly they didn't actually find me Jewish kids to play with either!

Dunno, it was 40 years ago and I didn't have a way to research it independently. Maybe they were generalizing from Boy Scouts, or maybe Girl Scouts were different back then, or maybe doing holiday-specific activities for Christmas and Easter was too much in my parents' eyes. Or it could easily be that they didn't want the cost and inconvenience of uniforms and getting me to meetings.

It is a testament to exhaustion, that I read "Maine expanding program to vaccinate raccoons in the wild" as "Maine is expanding a program to explode raccoons in the wild".

I think I should go to bed.
