    • http://npshistory.com/books/boy-scouts-katahdin.pdf I should like to hope that my book might make some boy beg his father to take him on a camping trip to Maine (without any gun but with a good camera!), and that it might make his father consent to go, where he will find just as much beauty and fun and strenuous, healthy excitement as his boy will, even if he can't climb Katahdin quite so fast, and wisely keeps out of the Chimney altogether. The Katahdin Chimney is no place for a father who isn't in condition. Scouts, keep your dads out of it unless they can chin themselves at least six times!  
    • This, IMO, is part of the problem in the hierarchy of local councils.  In reality, the COR, in conjunction with the others within the council, have considerable power if they are coordinated.  Each has a seat on the Executive Board, and a vote.  Most either choose to not participated beyond the signing of adult apps and occasional troop visits.  But, their job is to represent their CO on the council Exec board, and to convey the CO's concerns.  Most councils appear to downplay that actual power and would prefer to not see the COR's attending meetings, especially ones dominated by an elite clique appointed by the Scout Executive.  The SE appoints some board members, and those appear too often to be the controllers of the actual board decisions.  There have been occasions though where someone coordinated a COR revolt and suddenly there were major changes happening in that council, including the firing of the Executive and others.  I would suggest that if a council actually had active COR participation at a high level, they might be far better run.  
    • Feet have the ultimate power.  Ask Landers, Frary and Clark,  in its time the largest consumer metal products company in the World - that knew better than the customers what the customer wanted. Turns out the customers have all the power.  
    • That's what I was thinking.  If money is recovered, it would go back to the non-profit (or an equivalent non-profit).  In a way, it could financially help the NRA.  ... Unless this is all a publicity stunt. ... I just can't see the NRA dissolved.  This appears like the AG is more concerned about damaging the image than applying law.
