Now, what was it the Scoutmaster was supposed to say to the Scout? Oh yes: "Have you asked your Patrol Leader?"
As I thought about it, it occurred to me that here we have a real good example of the Scoutmaster asking a question that might have gone to his Commissioner... if he had one... So here we have a bunch of Acting-Commissioners, able to make use of their collective experience and knowledge. "Have you asked your Commissioner?" might be a reasonable response, but as I think about it, that might lead to other questions:
@ What's a Commissioner?
@ Who is he/she to me and my Unit?
@ Why should I ask them instead of Scouter.com, if I can find them?
@ What's the use... He'll only tell me to ask the DE...
