I believed I had everything lined out and timed to take us right up to the time their session was over.

During the first session

    Today in the Scouts, boys have more opportunities than girls. This issue is causing upheaval among equal rights advocates. Due to protests made by these advocates, girls are now able to join the Boy Scouts, but combining them does not solve the problem. Rather, Girl Scouts should have the same opportunities as the Boy Scouts because of the strive towards equality, scholarship opportunities, and Title IX.
