Linda - If God forbid, I am ever confronted with a similar situation, I
hope I handle it 1/2 as well as you. The sad truth is that some boys can
not be helped by Scouts and their continued presence jeopardizes the
other boys. You did your best. One can only hope this boy wakes up to
what is right in the world before a tragedy occurs.
