Why don't we beat prospective candidates until they break and tell all their secrets. JEEZUS it's starting to sound like the GESTAPO not the NTA. We act like the tools to STOP WHAT HAPPENED were NOT already there, it just took someone with big enough balls to use them. Why does everybody seem to forget that simple fact? I suspect that: 1. The CRAINS or any other past Director would pass a "background check" 2. They all had many years of service 3. They were all well know/respected individuals in taxidermy In the future this kind of thing needs STOPPED IMMEDIATELY instead of letting it get CLAWS. No amount of "vetting" can stop it. It takes a vigilant membership that makes its wishes known Everyone is looking to make things WORSE with all this crazy talk about background checks and 3 years consecutive membership. We sound like the gun lobby not taxidermists. Just for the record is the current board all up for "background checks" and do they all have 3 years of un-broken NTA service? I have to say all this talk sounds insane or worse.
