Not safe

To the Editor:

I was at my local bar recently and there were Girl Scouts who came into the bar selling cookies. Since when did the Girl Scouts allow minors to come into a bar and sell cookies?

When I was a Girl Scout, we had to wear our uniform to go door to door. I realize that times have changed and now they stand in front of Walmart pushing their wares, but a bar? Come on.

The girls looked like they were 12, and no uniforms, just a box of cookies. Let’s face it, they don’t go door-to-door for their safety. And a bar is just not safe at any age or any time. No parent was with them, just the two girls.
