Congratulations to Kent Masterson Brown

Congratulations are in order for my friend Kent Masterson Brown. Per Kent's Witnessing History Facebook page:
Kent Masterson Brown was appointed to the Kentucky Film Commission by Governor Matt Bevin on December 20. Brown’s term on the Commission will extend until 2020. The Kentucky Film Commission consists of fifteen members appointed by the Governor. The purpose of the commission is to promote the growth of the film, television, and video production industry within the Commonwealth of Kentucky by marketing and promoting Kentucky as a location destination for motion picture productions for the express purpose of economic development.
I've done reviews of some of Kent's work here and for other publications as well. Kent's film production and author website is here.

Bill B. - Thanks for taking the time to read. However, your comment had absolutely nothing to do with the post. You'll need to post fake news elsewhere.

Richard, that was not a fake news story. But nice try...and it has everything to do with Kentucky...those are the people that will be showcasing their state if Kent's job is successful.

It is indeed fake news as it had NOTHING to do with the post. In fact, you're guilty of what you were insinuating about all Kentuckians. You're willing to defame a whole class of people (the citizens of Kentucky) based on the hateful act of one person. Stay classy out there Bill.

You act as if that is an isolated incident...

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

It was. But, again, if you want your comments posted, stay on topic.

Richard,
I have read Kent's books on Alonzo Cushing and the retreat from Gettysburg, bought his DVD on Dan'l Boone (after you reviewed it), and made a trip down to Martin's Station, VA and did some 'exploring' of the area, and bought a bunch of Dan'l Boone-related books while down there . . .Good Stuff!
Now waiting for Kent to release his book on George Meade.
Thanks for all your insight and have a GREAT Holiday Season!
Regards, Bob

Hi Bob. I've read Kent's "Retreat From Gettysburg" and heard him speak on the topic as well. Fascinating. I never really appreciated the logistics involved in moving and feeding horses and mules for both armies until I read that book. If you ever get the chance to hear Kent speak, don't pass it up.

Merry Christmas!
