Taylor Mazur has learned a lot working on his “Citizenship in the Nation” merit badge, including how to wait for politicians. Taylor (top) broke out laughing while waiting for Sen. Al Franken to arrive for a meeting with some aspiring Eagle Scouts from St. Paul’s East Side. They asked Franken about his job and national issues—and got some practice facing the media.
