Aside from the fact that this would completely short circuit that gold old
BSA chain of command, there's one thing you might want to keep in mind...
We **ARE** the BSA. The members shape the movement. Many (most?) of the

that way. Then the BSA picked up on it, researched it, and gave it their
seal of approval.
