Based upon what Mike indicated earlier about registering in more than one
council and the trend in general in youth organizations, I really think the
organization is getting TOO PARANOID. The legal system which allows people
to sue other people for their own stupidity, clumseness, or lack of
attention or concern is really to blame for most of this.
Is there anyone else out there who shares my concern and longs for the day
when decisions were not dictated by "Will they sue me if something goes
wrong?". I know about the problems. In Los Angeles I was part of the only
troop in Hermosa Beach. Hermosa Beach is where the McMartin Pre-school was
located. This is the child molestation case which was all over the press
about five years ago.
