Are you, then, stating it is your belief that these steps must be followed
as the "Path" to White Scarfhood, so to speak? Steps would imply you must
take one to get to the next, although some of us with long legs do tend to
skip a step or two. :) I only wonder if this answers Amerinda's question by
saying you feel that to be a WS one should first be a cadet, despite the
very few examples to the contrary.
