cookies, forever

    The girls were highly successful at selling cookies at the neighborhood market. I feel for the girl scout policy makers and actually see their point.

    A North Carolina Girl Scout's plan to use the Internet to generate more cookie sales is crumbling. Eight-year-old Wild Freeborn posted a YouTube video in the hopes of selling enough boxes to send her troop to summer camp. But they said scouting officials told them it violated a ban on Internet sales and asked her to take it down after she scored about 700 orders. Freeborn told NBC's "Today" show Friday that she and her Web designer father, Bryan, had honorable intentions and took orders only from their hometown of Asheville. Her father says the ad was just promoting the cookies, so he thought it was OK.

    Girl Scouts of the USA spokeswoman Michelle Tompkins say promoting the cookies is fine, but the Freeborns ran into trouble because they posted the order form online. Tompkins says the organization wants to ensure fairness and protect the girls' safety.
