General Robert Baden-Powell
Man Week continues here at OPOD, and today we recognize General Robert Baden-Powell. We choose him not just because of his illustrious service to the British Empire, but because 100 years ago today, on February 8, 1908, he founded the Boy Scouts of America. So, we tip our hat to the good General, and all the young men in the Boy Scouts today.
OK, I guess I should say that the picture was suggested by the Evil Nate Maas. Normally I try to just ignore him, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
