That was probably me (although someone else may have posted it as well
beofre I got back form my extented vaction). The information on the
proposed new merit badges comes from Philmont Training Center.
By the 1997 printing of the BSA Requirements book (they print a new one
every two years) there are plans to add the following merit badges (and
maybe some others not decided yet):
The eight dropped (in case someone asks again) are Agribusiness,
Beekeeping, Botoney, Consumer Buying, General Science, Machinery, Masonary,
Scouts may continue to get these as long as badge supplies last at the
local council office.

The requirements for Eagle are mostly trivial, any scout is capable. Doing
them is what is significant, because most people never finish what they start.
