Well that was kind of dry. :)
I decided to join scouts-L (on digest) becuase Maj. Walton's post on joining
scouts-L came in at about the same time as a particularly ugly post on
I see a lot of posts about mergers of councils. Does this mean
a) National BSA has decided the optimum size of a council is larger than
it thought before?
b) These merging councils have shrunk (# of scouts) that significantly
since their founding.
c) There are an approximately equal number of council splits and these
are not publicized as much?
d) something else?
