In answer to Keith Garbutt....
I may be incorrect.. but it has been my impression that BSA *HAS* talked
to GSUSA about merging and becoming one COED entity... but the latest
news I got is that at the end.. talks broke down because GSUSA thought
that their leadership would get lost in the merge. Thus ending the idea
of any kind of coed scouts for now. Does anyone have any more substantial
evidence for or against this event having happened in the past???
In particular, I am VERY INCENSED that the commentary here is shifting to
point at the BSA as the bad guys.. when it seems that at THIS point it is
at the hands of GSUSA. If I am incorrect in my perceptions, I would welcome
any information to help me see the full picture.
Just like any corporate merger (which, let's not forget.. is really what we
have here..) the TOP MANAGEMENT are gonna be afraid (and therefore maybe
ANTI-MERGER) while the stockholders (US, you and me) may want something
