I’m always leery of image makeovers. Figures it’s the BSA. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy would never fly in Lowell.

“We can think of no one else in Lowell who more reflects the values of the Boy Scouts in making kids good citizens who strive to participate in their community through hard work, dedication and integrity. It’s all about service to a cause greater than one’s self — that’s John Cox,” Crocker told The Sun recently.

Last year’s recipient, Michael Lenzi, nominated Cox for the award. Other recipients include Lowell lawyer George Eliades, Jr.; Middlesex Community College President Carole Cowan; Lowell businessman James F. Conway III; Trinity Ambulance CEO John Chemaly; then-City Councilor Alan Kazanjian; the principals of Mill City Management, Leo Creegan, Terry McCarthy and Thomas McKay; Kevin Coughlin, Saints Medical Center vice president; and Lowell Five chairman Robert Caruso.

Lowell. How much perfume will it take for you to forget? Remember, you will have to be able to keep a straight face while your talking.

    Wasn’t this years ago??

  2. Lynne Says:

    Yeah, well, look who did the nominating, and look at some of the rest of the list…heh.

    Nothing like patting yourselves on the back when no one else will do it, eh?

    Also, as you said, it’s the BOY SCOUTS. No offence, but since they hate gays and basically accuse them of being pedophiles, I don’t exactly take their moralizing very seriously in any other matter. The Scouts can go screw.

  3. C R Krieger Says:

    Can we separate the boys in Boy Scouts from the adult leadership in making these judgements?

  4. Jack Says:

    The position of the BSA is all but directed by the LDS, who provide LOTS of funding.

    Folks should not damn kids over the acts of surrounding adults. Btw, that is the cornerstone of the Dream Act.

  5. Mr. Lynne Says:

    True there are innocents in any organization. That said, these are also young men (not talking cub scouts after all) in an internet age and are more likely to be well enough informed of the problem that inaction diminishes such innocence.

    For example, there are many adults who were very uninformed of the Salvation Army’s problem with gays a couple of years ago. Of course they’re well enough informed now (or at least had the opportunity to be).
