How often do we hear about teens who do something good? The news is often filled with all of the negative incidents that occur with our youth today. I can't tell you how many times I have read on these posts how the youth of today is so corrupt. Here we have a story about something positive and heroic that a young man did and all people can do is focus on the negative. This young man deserves respect and applause for what he has done. I find it sad and disrespectful that some are just harping on gay politics here and are giving no consideration for what this young man has done.
Good Grief!!! The Scout saved someone's life that had tried to commit suicide! Bravo for the teen! The Scouts (Boy & Girl) are great programs! Do we really have to interject sex into everything? BTW, I hope the Scout gets a commendation and the other guy gets some needed help. Do you folks really have to tear apart every story??? P.S. I was a Girl Scout.

Our Research Institute scouted out the New York City Toy Fair and spotted a few standouts we predict will be topping wish lists shortly.
When we scoped out the New York City Toy Fair, we spotted everything from human-like robots to kid-friendly DIY projects.
Stroll down any aisle of a Toys"R"Us these days and you'll be confronted with a billion options that are light-years beyond anything you had to entertain yourself with as a kid. Lego cruise ships (complete with flatscreen TVs in the lounge and sideboard jet-skis), battery-operated Mercedes-Benz sedans, and hi-tech tablets with Android operating systems abound. We wondered, as we let ourselves get nostalgic for a moment, if any of the beloved toys we played with as children were still even on the market. Thanks to a quick hunt on the Internet we were able to find that Fisher Price still makes their classic Two Tune TV, and you can still get your hands on a good ol' Slinky. Here's a roundup of the best old-school toys for kids-- we encourage you to click through the slideshow and consider wrapping up a well-loved classic for your little one this year.
