BSA files bankruptcy
« on: February 18, 2020, 04:14:57 pm »
"Hoping to contain a growing deluge of sexual-abuse lawsuits, the Boy Scouts of America took shelter in bankruptcy court on Tuesday, filing for Chapter 11 protection that will let it keep operating while it grapples with serious questions about whether the century-old Scouting movement has a viable future."

I got a notification on this just after 2:00 am.  Sorry to hear it, but not surprised.  I like the organization, but somewhere the mission got lost.

The mission got lost decades ago when the BSA was busy covering up the abuses to save its reputation.  Now its reputation is doubly compromised.
