Boy Scouts

I’m coffeeless, so bear with me. I’m not 100-percent certain what I think of John Lehman’s “Boy Scout” comment at the 9/11 hearings Tuesday. Frankly, he’s been one of the few adults in the room at this showboat commission. I fluctuate between thinking the Boy Scout comment outrage is a little overdone—he was not demeaning anyone, he was working on outlining a better response system–and thinking even Lehman has been brought down by this nonsense, ineffectual commission. What I actually think I think the most is that the Boy Scout moment was an easy venting opportunity for what everyone is beginning to get: i.e. the nonsense of this commission.
