Zach Wahls's speech has been making the rounds, lately, but I can't concentrate on the content of his message. I've been reading about Boy Scouts & gender in secret societies lately, so my brain gets stuck when he talks about being an Eagle Scout. I'm guessing that a tolerant Troop is behind it, but I don't think I could handle being in a group that was so vocally opposed to ideals that I care about. I've just sort of been dwelling on that, thinking about how I want to have "Batman Scouts" where you learn rope climbing, boomerang throwing, & martial arts, all while progressing through the ranks of Robin & Nightwing & eventually Batman. I watched an episode of Penn & Teller's Bullshit that was about the Boy Scouts debacle, even. I kind of hate Penn Jillette, & this episode is typical of why-- condemning bigotry while making gay jokes & using women as props? Still, he makes some fairly good points. He's basically a perfect distillation of the atheist libertarian-- you can agree with him a lot of the time, but the rest of the time, what the heck, what the heck. So that has been sort of gnawing away at the back of my brain. I had lunch with Will today, since he'll be back to the Brooklyn saltmines soon enough. We went to Rye House, since I was so impressed last time. This trip I had the truffled grilled cheese, which was darn tasty but not so much I feel I have to order it every time, & the baked potato soup, which was a fine taste experience. Then it was my turn to go back to the grindstone...but not before getting a few sibling interoffice envelopes to the riddle!
