Detroit, MI--a Detroit native was hospitalized last week due
to severe dehydration he suffered, reportedly in the name of
Freemasonry. Larry Schulter-Meier, a member of Whackadoodle Lodge No. 9,
International Free and Accepted Modern Masons, Inc., told The Past Bastard
that all he wanted to do was become a regular Mason. Instead, his
doctor misunderstood and prescribed him a heavy regimen of ex-lax: "So I
was trying to go visit a lodge on the other side of town. I showed them
my dues card and they told me I couldn't come fellowship because I
wasn't 'regular.' So I went to my doctor and he fixed me up."
Schulter-Meier was released from the hospital after receiving
intravenous fluids, but declined to continue his medication, citing:
"...if this is what being a regular Mason is all about, then I don't
want none of it."
