The LAPD makes me smile

I’m not a big fan of the police. I’ve had too many bad experiences over the years. But recently the LAPD did something fabulous. They cut ties with the Boy Scouts.

The Police Commission has voted to cut the Los Angeles Police Department's ties with an organization linked to Boy Scouts of America, which bars gays, atheists and agnostics from being troop leaders.

The organization, Learning for Life, was spun off from Boy Scouts of America, and runs the LAPD's Explorer program for teenagers interested in law enforcement careers.

Thanks LAPD, for doing the right thing.
