Thanks for this piece, the Mariners sounds amazing! I’m going to check if we have anything like in in Chicago on the Lake Michigan!
I was excited to hear about Boy Scouts accepting girls. I have a bit of with experienced both scouting organizations ( I was a Boy Scout and my sister was a girl scout) and I always thought it was a shame that Girl Scouts didn’t appear to offer the things that I found in Boy Scouts. Maybe it does, but my sister didn’t think so and I haven’t seen evidence to the contrary. As far as I can tell, reaching Eagle Scout is like being a Navy Seal for kids and I’m excited that my daughter and I can do this together (if she wants to of course).
Anyway, the ire seems misplaced though I understand it. Thanks for your piece it was inspiring and informative.
