E-commerce has 'netted the Girl Scouts. You've heard this year's batch of Scout cookies will be healthy -- almost no trans fats and, in the case of Little Brownie, no sugar either -- but you may've missed the advent of cybercookies. Buyers now can check online where neighbor Scouts will be selling cookies. (The same site sports a Girls Only gamezone.)
Scouts have come a long way, from an 18-girl troop formed 95 years ago in Savannah, Ga., to a 3.6-million-strong global organization. ... Wonder how many of us 'Grrls once were Girl Scouts?
