March 16-22, 2008 is designated Sunshine Week. It is an initiative that originated in 2002 with the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Its goal is to educate the public about the importance of open government and the dangers of excessive and unnecessary secrecy.
Hundreds of newspapers, broadcasters, and bloggers celebrate America's freedom by calling for more openness and honesty in local, state and federal governments and other organizations.
I don't often write about politics or the government; there are a zillion bloggers already covering those issues much better than I could.
I have simply tried to do my part in calling for openness, honesty, decency and fairness in Freemasonry.
I'm humbled that investigative reporter Sandy Frost has honored The Widow's Son with a "Sunshine Week Big Dogs Award." I'm sure there are many, many journalists and bloggers much more deserving than I am.
Thank you, Ms. Frost. And I offer my thanks to all of you for reading The Burning Taper.
