Qtoon: Some Nights You Can Still Hear His Fabulous Cry

Based as it is upon a Change.org press release, this week's cartoon might be a step or two ahead of reality.
NEW YORK, NY - Sources have confirmed that Boy Scouts of America officials have proposed a new policy -- which could be voted on as early as 2013 -- that would allow local chartering organizations to decide whether or not to accept gay youth and leaders, according to Change.org .
The proposal comes after Eagle Scout Zach Wahls delivered more than 275,000 signatures to the National Annual Meeting of the Boy Scouts of America from a popular petition on Change.org . The petition calls on the Boy Scouts to reinstate a lesbian den leader in Ohio, Jennifer Tyrrell, who was removed from her position because of her sexual orientation, and to end the Boy Scouts' long-held policy barring openly gay scouts and scout leaders.
Chris thinks that I made the story-teller in the cartoon look a lot like his late father, a scout leader for many years. I just don't see it, though. I imagine that it's probably just the uniform. I think the story teller looks more like Ron Swanson or  Tom Friedman or that one guy on Newhart.
