The Documents that Define America

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Since our country's founding, Americans have debated the speeches and tracts sacred to our founding, from the Exodus story to the Declaration of Independence. In this election year, politicians and pundits constantly debate the "true" meaning of America's core canon, asking what the founding fathers or Martin Luther King, Jr. or Eleanor Roosevelt would think of immigration reform, or affirmative action, or birth control. In his new book, author and professor Stephen Prothero has collected these core texts in his new book, "The American Bible."

The Girl Scouts Celebrate 100th Anniversary

Monday, March 12, 2012

We’ve all seen the Girl Scouts selling their tagalongs and thin mints. More than a few of us used to sell those cookies ourselves. But the Girl Scouts, of course, are far more than cookies, badges and sashes. They’re an organization that’s had an impact on 50 million women. Eighty percent of female business owners are Girl Scout alumnae, as are 70 percent of all women in Congress, and nearly every female astronaut.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts, and we’re celebrating with the current CEO Anna Maria Chavez. Chavez joins us from the birthplace of the Girl Scouts, Savannah, Georgia.

Irene Saucedo is also here. Homeless her whole life, she joined a Girl Scout leadership development program called the Gamma Sigma Girls in high school. She is now a freshman at Texas State University.

Are People Losing Faith in Their Leaders?

Thursday, November 17, 2011

On Wednesday, The Takeaway spoke with Thomas Day, an Iraqi War veteran who grew up in State College, Pennsylvania, where he took part in Jerry Sandusky's Second Mile program. "Young folks of my generation don't have a whole lot of faith in the leaders," Day said.
