Response to the Lost Symbol

Brethren all,

Just received this link from the Scottish Rite. They've compiled a wonderful response to Dan Brown's new Book, the Lost Symbol. Its worth a read in case any of your non-Masonic friends ask how often you drink wine out of a skull.

My impression of the book was favorable overall. Its a typical Brown novel full of action interlaced with overly long conversations about dodgy history. It did however highlight some of the more interesting and curious architectural features of Washington D.C. that the casual tourist would overlook. That's one thing I do love about his books.

Phnom Penh Square & Compass Club

Brethren all,

Great news from Cambodia. Several local and expat brethren have set up a Square and Compass Club in Phnom Penh. In addition to the local membership they also have several brethren who frequently visit Cambodia as members.

Their first meeting is scheduled for October 26th. They plan to meet monthly for dinner and discussion. Master Masons of any recognized lodge may attend.

Contact the club secretary for time and location.
