But, maybe, that's the point. In the "big picture", if centralized,
electronic distribution of something _is_ more effecient that staffing
local offices and paying to ship paper around, maybe we should seriously
consider "why have a local office?"
It's a question faced by almost every large business... which really does
provide better service? If, over time, most of the contacts want
instant-online distribution, should we keep something just because that's
the way its always been done?
NOTE: I am not saying that we should shut down offices. I _am_ saying
that refusing to consider new alternatives is a disservice to Scouting.
