-that has appeared on CNN and in the morning papers . . .
- What are you responses to the way this story (and the problem it
-highlights) has been handled?

I haven't seen the CNN broadcast, but our local paper did have the
story. I was rather pleased with the way it was handle, but the the
publisher of the paper in on the local Board of Directors, so we have
an ally. The story mentions some specifics, but then went on to say
that the number of cases is small when looking at the whole picture.
It said that the numbers worked out to about 1 in 13,000 were
molesters. One of the local radio stations was not quite so gracious
in their coverage, tho they did say that the incidents were not high
