Karl, I think perhaps you missed the intro and/or the point of the
broadcast. I beleive that Mr. Sollisch's idea was that we can all
learn something by listening to another point of view. He just used
humor to make his point.
I must admit that while I listened, I thought, "Oh, no, somebody's
going to be upset. Scouts-L will surely have a comment or two." :-)
For those who missed it, there's a RealAudio clip at www.npr.org.
Click "search", type "Scouts" and then select "NPR's June 15, 1998
Morning Edition", then select "Boy Scouts". (The actual final URL is
unwieldy and probably wouldn't work here.)
