I certainly agree with this point. I do have a problem, however, with
Barry's statement of the question. His wording makes it quite clear that
he objects to the idea. If the question is posed to a scout in this
manner, it suggests and presupposes the reply. If we are truly going to
allow the scouts to have input on this or any other question, the choices
they are given must be given in an unbiased manner.
