Writing in The Wall Street Journal, Tony Woodlief looks at the changing manual of the Boy Scouts:
The latest handbook, further, suggests that we might add a fourth G to Mr. Mechling's three: green. Scouts for years have learned safe camping with minimal impact, and now they have an eco-friendly manual. But that's still not good enough for some. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the fishing merit badge eliminated. The Scouts have yet to do so, but the handbook now recommends tofu in camp stew, so who knows if PETA will triumph? The first edition, in contrast, described how to cook frog legs.
