Boy Scouts rescue Ann Curry

        Had to post this story about the Boy Scouts.  Seems lots of people want to "knock" this wonderful organization today.
        Up front, I'm pro Scouts. I was a Cub, Boy Scout, and Sea Scout. Mother was a den mother. Wife was a den mother. I was a Cub leader, and Boy Scout Neighborhood commissioner. So, the following story caught my eye.

        According to Scouting Magazine, a troop of New Jersey Boy Scouts on a Philmont camp training exercise through Harriman State Park in New York last month rescued NBC journalist Ann Curry after she broke her ankle while hiking. 
Scoutmaster Rick Jurgens, a firefighter and EMT, double-checked their work and found they made a textbook splint. The young men of Troop 368 then built a makeshift stretcher and carried the Emmy Award-winning newswoman out of the woods.
        Good going guys!
