Girl Scouts again allowed to sell cookies in front of founder's home

OK, so we know this isn't a "Beaufort" story, but the sheer ridiculousness of this whole Girl Scouts not being able to sell cookies in front of their founder's birthplace story is just off the charts.

In case you missed it, a Savannah codes enforcer booted the Savannah Girl Scouts from the spot in front of the Juliette Gordon Low house, where for years they've sold Thin Mints and Shortbreads.

For those who don't know, Low was born in Savannah in 1860 and founded the Girl Scouts of America.

So the Girl Scouts were kicked from their spot on what appeared to be a technicality, and outrage among all those who needed their next fix of Thin Mints ensued. But Savannah's interim city manager seems to have to put an end to the controversy and said the Girl Scouts can have their booth back.
