Uh, that li'l ol' cynic me sees a couple of pitfalls to making these
examples of other folk assuming Scouts are Trustworthy too public.
As several of us have mentioned, Scout shirts are available, often with
insignia, at many thrift shops. At the NCAC Scout shop, anyone can buy a
uniform shirt, and how many non-Scouting types know just how much
"padding" should be on it?
Seems to me that highlighting another possible way to pull a con isn't
exactly in our enlightened self-interest? It'll only take one or two
incidents where "Scouts" weren't trustworthy to ruin everyone's image.
