Gee, John, you are the only one who noticed the post at all. Or,
rather, responded. I will start commitment procedures against any who
second the motion.
Another jerk to the chain: Ozzie Nelson, band leader, TV star,
father of Rick and the often confused partner of Harriet was, in his
day, the youngest Eagle Scout ever--at 13! Then there was that fellow
Sam Walton who has half his name spread over 99% of this
country--Youngest Eagle Scout ever in his state--yes, at age 13!
Like that other fellow said, the question is not should the boy
advance that quickly, the question is, "Did YOU deliver the Promise?"
