"They probably would have not done anything or taken a lot longer to take action. Just saying "someone call 911 doesn't get anything done." You are supposed to do as you did and assign that task to a particular person or else everyone…"

Will replied to Joshua Wolf's discussion Fraternal orders for young men?
"AFAIK, every fraternal order accepts young men.  Knights of Columbus accepts starting at age 18.  Freemasons, it's 18 or 21.  Elks and Moose, 21.  Oddfellows, 16.  Rotary, 18.  You have plenty of options."
