Last night we did a short item on the Cub Scouts — about how it’s now possible to earn an award in the category of video games. An article we saw motivated the item — part of the lead sentence of the article was that it “seemingly” contradicted the larger message and mission of the Scouts to “foster physical fitness.”
The problem is: there’s a lot more to the story, as is usually the case. We heard from a few loyalists after the broadcast is over — so tonight we’re going to give the topic a more thorough airing, in the interest of fairness. Lee Cowan will have that story from Los Angeles.
As always, we hope you can join us tonight — and once again, our thoughts and prayers are with the folks on the Gulf Coast.
