You Call This Unity!

At a recent AA forum, I heard some distressing news. A member reported that some old-timers in his area are going "underground" because they don't like the changes in AA and are frustrated by the problems. These underground meetings are open only to some AAs and allegedly have attendance requirements, such as having to be five years sober.

Just last night, a young man from my home group informed me that a similar practice has started in my area. Some AAs are starting meetings in their homes and "tapping" certain AAs to attend. The young man from my group said that he knew he didn't come from the right socioeconomic group to get "tapped."
