YES! NOW is the time for the BSA to speak out on what it is doing in
positive ways. The Supreme Court decision will be out within days.
With the Supreme Court decision coming out, we will be in the spot light.
The organization needs to get geared up NOW to be able to present the
organization in the best possible light when we get called for those
TV interviews. The organization
will have to do a MUCH BETTER job of public relations than they have done
in the past.
