Over at the Oxford American, Rosecrans Baldwin treats us to a piece on America’s Boy Scouts. Also, adolescent angst:
Any cool kids in my town whose parents enrolled them in Cub Scouts were gone by the time we were old enough to level-up.

Or maybe those of us who remained simply didn’t know any better, or maybe we actually liked scouting.
