Brings up a good question: Why is it OK for Women to keep a hat on, when Me
must remove? Hummmm!!! If removing a hat is all about respect, shouldn't we
all be respectful!

I agree with Chris,
we should never teach anyone to not respect anyone or anything. I for one
would rather see hats on after several days of Summer Camp and no Baths for
some as a requirement. But then that little old Scouter with the Award
Knots like a 4 Star General would have nothing to do!
Hats off to the List!! or is That Hats On!
