Gold Award gets lukewarm press

I'm visiting my parents in my old hometown. I leafed through the local paper, and was surprised to see two local girls earned their Gold Award this summer. When I was in high school, all the local troops had disbanded around junior high.
But my real shock came when I noted the story ran on Page 13 of the paper! In over 20 years of reading the town paper, I've never seen an Eagle Scout announcement that didn't run on page 1. I wrote a letter to the editor to point out the disparity.

I Googled the matter of Gold Award vs. Eagle Scout to see what I would find, and I came across this excellent essay in response to a Yahoo Question. I had to share it.
