The Boy Scouts of America made news last week when they announced that they intended to defy the Rick Perrys and Rick Santorums of the world by admitting openly gay Scouts.

But the group does not intend to end its policy of prohibiting gay adults to serve as troop leaders.

Filmmaker and Eagle Scout Todd Bieber, of The Onion and Upright Citizens Brigade, hopes to convince the organization he loves to reconsider this decision when it votes on policy later in May. So he made this video to help end the discrimination.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Just over year before her untimely death on Friday, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared as a guest lecturer for the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, AR with National Public Radio correspondent Nina Totenberg. The crowd that signed up to see "Notorious RBG" live was so large that the event had to be moved to a major sports arena – and they weren't disappointed by the wide-ranging, hour-long interview.

Witty, charming, brilliant, principled, Ginsburg represented the very best of American liberalism and modern feminism. Listen to her and you'll feel even more deeply what former President Bill Clinton says in his poignant introduction: "Only one of us in this room appointed her…but all of us hope that she will stay on that court forever."
