On Thursday, May 23, 2013, the Boy Scouts of America National Council voted to ease a long-standing ban and allow openly gay boys to be accepted as scouts. But, as WYSO’s Jerry Kenney reports, not all of the controversial issue was settled.
About 1,400 voting members of nation's leading youth organization, cast their ballots at an annual meeting in Dallas, Texas. More than 60 percent of those voting supported the proposal to life the ban.
Mike and Ruthy are a duo from West Hurley, New York. They made a stop at WYSO on their tour back across the country and chat with Niki Dakota about their music, shared connections and the joys of touring with their five year old and eleven month old children.
Mike and Ruthy's latest album is titled NYCEP. You can learn more about Mike and Ruthy and listen to their music on their website, www.mikeandruthy.com. You can can also visit their Facebook page.
