Please reconsider that thought. This is fund raising for Girl Scouts. Is
the fund raiser less important because it uses cookies to do so? Should
they instead go door to door simply asking for money? It will take them
twice as long to raise half as much. They might miss twice as many lessons
in that case. Looking at it from this perspective, perhaps teachers should
be thankful that the Girl Scouts have one of the more efficient ways of
raising money (i.e. the cookies). Personally I buy about half a dozen boxes
of those Thin Mints myself.
