I don't think Ben Love even ranks with Bo Jackson! Anyone that supports
some of the policies in effect at NJ 89, needs to re-examine the relation
between scouts and scouters and scouting and the public. But that may be
a dead issue, I hope, and is a separate cursade on my part. Bill Hillcourt
is more like Mat, Luke, John etc, he wrote the Gospels.
COED SCOUTS! Women SCOUTMATERS! Women in the OA! Now thats a topic!
Anyone that has been to a World Jambo, or even an international event
in Canada or International Calument at ELK LICK PA, may know that SCOUTS
in many countries are just SCOUTS! Not BOY scouts or GIRL SCOUTS, just
down in the mud, out in the rain, build a fire scouts!!! I personally think
its a positive step. It certainly keeps the olders SCOUTS active! The
same SCOUTING goals remain in effect, so why so much oposition?
