once it did not cost so much And i believe the older exes tell it use to be fun.
These extremes were not always this extreme
I too often often like to think the relationships I had with various ex-girlfriends were really not that bad, until I run into them somewhere or they call me to talk and then I remember exactly why we are no longer together.
Any time I'm at an airport bar waiting for a flight and see a soldier coming back from Iraq or Afghanistan, I buy them a drink and converse with them, they too often say there were times they had fun over there too.
Lets not pretend that Hubbard's intentions were honorable, he was a conman from day one. If people had fun it was in spite of Scientology not because of Scientology.
