<< Bill Lantz reported: a national syndicated talk show host report the two
mostly widely read books in the world are the Bible and the Boy Scout Handbook.
I believe this was Mort Crimm (sp?) as heard on my local talk radio station. My
says no transcript is available.
G. Gordon Liddy also defended the BSA very well in his show yesterday. A caller
purporting to be a Levi Strauss employee was discussing the corporate policy of
Levis, and the refusal of some scouters to buy Levis as a result. The caller
stated that the "matching contributions" the corp. pulled are a "very small
amount", and how this policy caused real debate among employees.
Liddy's central defense that the caller was unable to answer was "If Levi's goal
is not to effect the policies of the BSA, then what is the objective of the
exercise?" I believe at one point, Liddy also said "good for" the scouters who
are purchasing other brands.
If I get a response to my e-mailed request for a transcript, I will make it
