In the 4/7/95 “These Parts” edition, it sez next to the “Visitor’s Guide” map on page 19: “Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate Ben Masel posed nude on a campaign flyer proclaiming “Nothing to Hide.”‘

All true, except it happened in WISCONSIN. I know Ben very well, and he lives in Madison. He is a well-known activist for hemp legalization, an organizer for annual “Weedstock” events up north, and an active nonmember of the Rainbow Family. Ben also ran for sheriff of Dane County last year.
