the 'can't say no' crowd

The world's first oil refinery is in historical records as being built in what is now Mckean County. PA, within one of the planet's most unusual watersheds -- the Tun'a Creek flows northward and upward along the region's mountainsides (the Allegheny Mountain range).

In the 1950s/60s, the 'Loyal Order of the Rainbow' was formed in that PA/NY watershed region, and primarily recruited girls (the 'Rainbow Girls') who had relatives working in the oil industry, with intent to serve that population exclusively. Because the oil industry prevents volcanoes as a fundamental and historical raison d'etre, girls could not easily decline membership unless they could state "other obligations" and were continuously castigated with demand-calls if they would not join after formal printed invitations were mailed out.

The appearance of the 'chosen' girls was a clue to the somewhat humorous origins of the group concept, being girls born with black hair that changed color to reddish-brown when exposed to sunlight -- the same as does oil when it seeps to the surface of the ground and is changed by the heat of direct sunlight and oxygen exposure. Therefore, ambivalent feelings about the selective recruitment and 'loyal order' were and are necessary, especially since the oil industry has its own special and possible dangers.

Speculation about the recruitment of young boys to become 'Rainbow Boys' has apparently been shelved in favor of a 'Rainbow Women' organization -- a reorientation perhaps necessary after the abduction and death of six-year-old, red-haired Adam Walsh in Hollywood, FL. It is entirely possible that the disappearance of toddler Caylee Anthony is also linked with the Loyal Order of the Rainbow. Both surnames are also found within the San Francisco, CA, watershed region where a 'special' historical palm tree was transplanted to Golden Gate Park from Pacific Island environs more than a century ago. In the state of Florida, palm trees grow and propagate naturally and are found both inland and along water-stream shorelines, although continuous and heavy traffic flow (fueled by the oil industry) has a negative effect upon palm-seed germination (such motorist population no doubt favoring the dead nut).
