Nothing But Crums for the Girl Scouts

The declining economy has taken its toll on many things and now it's messing with our Girl Scout Cookies!  Can things get worse.  I think not.

According to CNN, The Girl Scouts are downsizing their popular fund-raising cookies due to the crumbling economy.  A Spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts of USA said "the cost of baking a cookie today is significantly higher than it was even a year ago, and our bakers cannot continue to absorb these rising costs."  In addition to downsizing the actual size of the cookies, They'll also be down-sizing the packaging.
