SR sugar-delirium defense coming up

Girl Scout cookies have been delivered to many in the SR newsroom this morning.


“On my honor I will…

…do my duty to God and my country, to help other people at all times and obey the Girl Scout laws.” That’s how I remember the pledge, anyway.

And I sold Girl Scout cookies – for 50 cents a box. Thin mints, peanut butter, shortbread and I think a fourth selection were the boxes I lugged through my Minnesota neighborhood.

Girl Scout cookie lovers now have many options – and a new one this year: the gluten-free, chocolate chip, shortbread cookie. The treat will be available in 20 test markets.

No matter what they sell me, I always open the door to young people who are seeking to better themselves and the community. It’s part of my on-going pledge to “help other people at all times.”

Buon appetito.

Should these be controlled substances?


Or at least accurately labeled to reflect their addicting nature. Something along the lines of, say, Cocaine Sandies or Meth Patties.
