What happens when Girl Scouts grow up?

Tonight (May 20) I will be speaking, briefly, to people who are supporting Girl Scouts by attending the regional organization's annual dinner. My talk will be about seven minutes on the news media's role -- and our responsibility as a society -- in fostering an informed citizenry.

I'll be in excellent company. Five women, including a high school student, are being honored as Women of Distinction. You surely know at least some of them: Jane Wait, Janice White, Janine Dykeman, Patricia Hale and Sarah Rubenstein. Read a little about them in today's Saratogian:
