Scouts Train to Fight Terrorists, and More

From the NYT:
The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters.

Scouting isn't perfect, but I quite liked it when I was in jr. high. But this isn't something I'd like my kids to be involved in.
