Timed to correspond to last week's opening of National Treasure: Book of Secrets, the Washington Post published a surprisingly balanced piece on Freemasonry on Christmas Eve.
The article is peppered with quotes from Jon Turteltaub, director of the National Treasure films, as well as Masonic research historian Margaret Jacob of UCLA, George Seghers, executive director of the Masonic Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia, and various D.C.-area Masons.
While they did trot out the "motto" about making good men better, we were spared the now-trite "We're not a secret society; we're a society with secrets" claim.
Worth a read.
