I feel I have to comment here.
I taught Dutch for 4 years and yeah, when I read the thread title I got kinda excited (even though from recent discussions with the current management I know this isn't very likely), so as a funny line, I agree it fell kinda flat.
But I wasn't outraged, or any of the other things said in this thread. I know who Walter is and he's a passionate Dutch Boy alumnus. Nobody - and I mean nobody - loves Dutch Boy and the kids who marched there more than he does. He proved it year after year with long hours of volunteer work and by showing up at practices, camps, parades and shows to cheer the members on. Walter lives and breathes Dutch Boy.
So - maybe the post was ill considered, but there was absolutely no intent of malice towards Dutch Boy, and he doesn't deserve what has been posted here. I just wanted to point out that the anonymity of forums makes it easy to demonize someone you disagree with, but behind the sign on name there's a good guy who is probably feeling pretty awful about all this right now.
