A day or so ago we had someone saying that the Florida
scoutmaster was probably a trustworthy sort, because scoutmasters
are carefully chosen by, well, the Boy Scouts, one of the most
squeaky clean groups anyone can think of.

And now this. Can we please have an end to this kind of argument?
Humans can act very strangely, even highly qualified, respectable
humans charged with caring for boy scouts or atomic bombs.  The
Catholic Church, remember, seems to have a problem with priests
who molest young boys (see a recent NY Times story on the
resignation of the Archbishop in Palm Beach, for a current
example). Jesse Marcel Sr. may or may not have been a fine and
trustworthy man, but we can't presume that he is just because he
held the job he did.
