      Smoke detectors for Boy Scouts tents?

      A Michigan agency says the Boy Scouts of America won't need to equip their two-person tents with smoke detectors. Lawmakers who got wind that the fire safety regulation would start affecting Boy Scouts' tents this summer say it's an example of government run amok. A state Department of Human Services spokesman said Wednesday that common sense will prevail. Dave Akerly says the 2009 rule at issue was being interpreted too strictly by a bureau that oversees children's camps. He says DHS leadership intervened after discovering there was a move afoot to require the Scouts to install smoke detectors.
