Excerpt:Â Finding an organization more all-American than the Boy Scouts would be hard. Take it from someone who is blessed to have not one, but two sons achieve the distinction of becoming â€“ this organization is up there with baseball and apple pie. According to its charter, it exists to "promote â€¦ the ability of boys to do things for themselves and others â€¦ and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues." Since 1910, that's exactly what the Boy Scouts have been doing. Thousands of men today in positions of leadership, from soldiers to salesmen, began learning lessons in responsibility when they were Scouts. Which makes it all the more curious that the city of Philadelphia is determined to kick its local Scout council â€“ the "Cradle of Liberty," seventh largest council in the nation â€“ out of the building it's been meeting in for 80 years.
