letter to Congress

I didn't tell you about Benjamin Long. I told my Congressional Representative. So let me just tell you.

Benjamin Long is certified living Master of buon fresco in the method of Michelangleo. He is a NC native son and a veteran.  He has an incredibly interesting story.

He grew up in Statesville (home of the marvelous Carolina BalloonFest, Ft. Dobbs of French and Indian War fame, Gov. Vance's house, a very old plantation house still in operation, a Ben Long Fresco... and walk in the hanging place of that infamous Tom Dooley - he was famed by the women--).
