At our EOA meeting, one of the Professioanls were there and gave a
summary, before we heard it elesewhere (we had been discussing scouts-l).
The projected costs included a blood test and conversion of the prints to
electronic form so they could be searched by computer. I love Scouting and
reconigze the need to protect the kids, but I am not entirely comfortable
with the "Big Brother" approach.
BTW, If you would E-mail me the particulars I would greatly appreciate it.
