All Things Considered, May 25, 2006 · The society of Masons is a fraternity that evokes images of mysterious symbols, grand legends of King Solomon's Temple, hidden treasure and the founding fathers. It also fits right in with America's current Da Vinci Code fascination. Recently, commentator Holly Rossi got an assignment to write a newspaper story about the Masons. And she rediscovered her personal connection to Masons. Holly Rossi lives in Arlington, Mass.
Though I do have to say that when I listen to people with Masonic history in some one's family tree I find a lot of common familial ties as the lodge lessons pass into family lessons.
Ms. Holly Rossi I think would be very surprised at how those things carried over.
