I don't think so! I hear "Mr. XXX is a real butthead" all the time.
Mr or MRS or Ms does nothing to gain a scouts respect! Just because the
scout MAY use a title to address Mr or Ms Butthead - does not mean they
respect the person behind the title.
I believe that Scouter XXX - would more than address some peoples
requirments for a title.
Or you can call me Ray . . . But don't call me SIR (any more)
