A few days ago, the New York Times printed a very good article about Freemasonry. The article featured interviews with the M.'.W.'. Neal I. Bidnick, Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York and the V.'.W.'. Thomas Savini, Director of the Robert R. Livingston Masonic Library.
Grand Master Bidnick has been made himself very available for discussion of the Craft in public forums since his installation in May. He has also been interviewed on the Radio and for CNN. I think that it's a good idea to give a "public face" for Freemasonry - it helps show that we really aren't a secretive lot plotting to take over the world.
Brother Chris Hodapp's "Freemasons for Dummies" Blog carries the text for the article.
