Signorile gets James Beard Foundation to dump Boy Scouts

Excellent job by Mike.  And truly a classy move by the James Beard Foundation.  As Mike notes:

Earlier today I wrote about how the president of the prestigious James Beard Foundation, Susan Ungaro, had accepted an award from the Boy Scouts of America, which bans gay scouts and gay scoutmasters. It was especially troubling considering that the legendary chef and cookbook writer James Beard was an openly gay man who was thrown out of Reed College in Portland in 1922 for precisely the same reason: because he was gay.
