Boy Scouts Give Forests the (One?) Finger Salute

As a Boy Scout, I always appreciated the basic ethic of wilderness protection and survival skills that the organization appeared to embody.  Sadly, the institution seems to have been preaching one thing, whilst practicing something altogether different, as we learn in this video from Stephen Colbert.  As Stephen says, “The Boy Scouts of America proudly raise the Scout sign and tell their own conservation code to read between the lines.”
