    • I totally disagree.  The fact that my unit is highly autonomous will help to insulate us from the bankruptcy.  The council is not so highly autonomous.  It will have a much harder time showing the bankruptcy court that it is not a functional unit of BSA.  
    • No amount of money, nor tombs of protective rules can keep a few of the deviants from their goals.  All we can do is use the tools on hand and find better ways to strengthen them.  Meanwhile, maybe we can create a miracle and bring common sense and societal responsibility back; but do not hold your breath.  One thing that would help, but because we live in a greedy, egocentric society, likely will not, is to fix the legal system to be fair but not destructive.  
    • I think Philmont will be interesting.  I believe it could very likely be a casualty here.  Let's face it - it's not essential to what we do.  Yes, it enriches the program for many, but it's not essential. We, American citizens, had an opportunity to fight this politically and did not.  As a result, we now roll the dice.  I will not be surprised if Philmont and many local camps get sold.
    • Interesting take from Philmont on the Bankruptcy...pretty much - yep BSA filed Chapter 11, but we have meals to pack for summer treks (and I expect they sort of implied that The woods are lovely dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep,) ===============================================================   Today the Boy Scouts of America filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy (Learn more: www.BSARestructuring.org). At Philmont, we continue to prepare for 22,000 Scouts to hike our trails this summer. We are happy to report that our food packing team is hard at work packing more than 700,000 trail meals
    • Except money is fungible.  Implement a program fee to replace FOS.  This then allows money from other sources that might have been spent on program for councils to invest in the BSA's victims fund.
