In a recent Associated Press article about openly gay youths being accepted into the Boy Scouts of America come New Year’s Day, national executive board member Brad Haddock explained the momentous occasion as such: "My hope is there will be the same effect this Jan. 1 as the Y2K scare. It's business as usual, nothing happens and we move forward." The AP goes on to say that “leaders are rooting for the change to be a non-event, comparable to another New Year's Day in 2000 when widespread fears of digital-clock chaos to start the new millennium proved unfounded.” And just like the once-believed digital collapse, we’ll hopefully laugh at how ridiculous some of us were about this whole sexual orientation business soon enough.
