I picked up the Sunday paper this weekend and eventually made my way to the Parade magazine supplement where I found that the feature article was on Dan Brown's new book, The Lost Symbol. Some of you may recall that some filming was done recently at the House of the Temple in Washington, D.C. (Headquarters of the Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction). From what I gathered from the Parade article, the new Dan Brown book will be very similar to his previous Da Vinci Code in some respects. The prologue of the new book makes the House of the Temple look very dark, forboding, and full of sinister secrets...so here we go again with the same old conspiracy theories. Although Brown will quickly point out that his books are strictly for entertainment, some people will claim that they know better with all kinds of wild theories- and they won't let facts get in their way. I can only say, have patience Brothers, this too will pass.
