Do Abraham Lincoln, black Confederates, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Michael Jackson, Zombies, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, all the Gettysburg Ghosts, Marilyn Monroe, Jim Morrison, John Lennon and George Harrison haunt historic Ben Lomond?  Will Balloon Boy join them 80 or so years from now?

Sorry for the intro – I’m just testing a theory based on some stuff my friend Craig Swain told me about attracting visitors.  Shameless but fun nonetheless.  (UPDATE: I got it all wrong, and what Craig told me had nothing to do with what I was doing here.  Figures I’d screw that up).
