Masons are virtually powerless, Mason claims… Nothin’ here but a bunch of guys “around the fireplace.”

Parallelnormal friend and Boston-area blogger Kathy turned me on to on a new, cheeky send up of conspiracy theories by Good magazine: from the Masonic layout of Washington, D.C., to the conniving of the secret societies Skull and Bones and the Bilderberg Group.
Good is an attractive new magazine for people with fat wallets and consumer guilt: “Good is for people who give a damn. It’s an entertaining magazine about things that matter,” reads the magazine’s mission statement. The magazine’s most prominent ads are greenwashing statements from the airline JetBlue, as well as British Petroleum and BMW.
The Good piece is written by a Mason, and is being well-received by his brothers in the blogosphere:
