Pete, I was going to add a semi-snide comment last night, but didn't because I figured it would just harden your stance. After seeing the snide (but humorous) additions this morn, I want to try another tack.

From the above, I agree that you have been places where a sense of paranoia is enhanced. I would also agree (from several professional run-ins) that the SC has a bunch of devious bastards at high levels.

But so do most organizations. (Haven't checked the Ba'hais lately.)

And you really aren't swaying peoples' opinions by lacing you comments with MLC SC sniping. Worse, your posts often have some meat, which tends to get ignored as people look for those special initialisms. There are a lot of good SC people, especially where the rubber meets the road, and you are mainly alienating people with less extreme viewpoints.

Now I have to get back to solving the Israeli-Palestinian problem.

:idea: I think the only solution is to have electronic registers on the top of all summits. Every climber would have to register with a central database. The climber’s implanted radio frequency transmitter would have to come within a few cm of the summit receiver to record in the log. Implanted transmitters would be necessary to prevent cheating and claimed summits by known terrorists. Suspected terrorists would be on the no summit list. :roll:
