Someone reading Randy's uniform response over my shoulder sommented that when
he was a scout (about '85 he said) the scouts in his troop wanted to have
everyone wear full uniform. The idea was raised by the boys and brought to
the PLC which voted to 'encourage' but not require full uniform. The
Scoutmaster vetoed the proposal and announced at the next meeting that the
troop's "official" uniform would be scout shirts only. He added that it was
dumb to go out and buy scout pants when jeans were just as good!!
I wonder how many uniforming decisions such as the above are made by adults,
not scouts. I wonder what decisions the boys would make if the adults were
truely neutral on the issue.
