« Native Terrorists Warn Zarqawi: Back Down For Elections | Main | Liberals: Poor Parents Are Drunks »
Many of our CQ community come from a younger demographic than I sometimes imagine. Although I have been interested in politics since Watergate, when I was ten years old, most people don't start finding politics and policy debate very exciting until they have gone through at least an election or two as a voter. As you may imagine, I'm always pleased to hear that young men and women in high school and college follow CQ and other blogs, keeping up with the latest in politics.
One of our regular readers, Sean Skelton, has also had time to be active in the Boy Scouts of America, serving his local community as well as participating in ours. I heard from his family that Sean has passed his final BSA review and will shortly receive his Eagle Scout award. As a former Scout myself -- one who only made it to First Class before getting involved in other extracurricular activities -- I know how hard one has to work to achieve the ultimate rank in the Scouts. Not only must the Scout win a significant number of merit badges, but he must perform three community-service projects. Only after that and a review of his work will the BSA grant the rank of Eagle. Needless to say, not many make it, but those that do invariably are a credit to their families and their community, all of whom benefit from such a fine young man.
Congratulations, Sean, and be sure to send us a picture of your ceremony.Sphere It View blog reactions
