    I think I at last I was in a condition of OUT. That was a quarter of a century ago.

    I was happy to be a wog & delighted to be pts-to-the-middle-class plus found my joy in going from fish fry to fish fry.

    What is odd, so help me God, is an old dear friend called yesterday & asked me if I could help him with something he wanted to run by me. Turns out, he had a question about should he really CS for this or for that.

    My suggestion was not to go either way until there was a good D of P done to get more data ( as I suspected something was being missed that neither suggested direction would help ) then - and only then - pick a direction to go.

    I was stunned that a person I once had so very much respect for being so very very good at CSing, now, missed something that a person their first day on 4 CS internship would never miss.

    This degraded ability is obvious in the way things are trying to be done. What happened to these once bright people ? How did they dull down so much ?

    How does a person that seemingly could jump tall buildings in one leap now not be able to open the car door to step out ?

    Oh well. my friend remains as deeply enmeshed in the cult as I remain certain to never be in any org again.

    I don't think they know their ship is sinking.

    I'm all woggy now :)

    Anyone remember when Wanda Madias Zinke was HAS AOLA and blew with her mother, Joanne Zinke, around 1981?

    I wonder what ever happened to them? Wanda was a hoot to work with:thumbsup:

    Yeh, I really liked the both of them, too. Once when Wanda was HAS, I was sent to see her over a KR. I was terrified I was in big trouble, but instead, she just cracked up laughing when she read it. Made my day! :laugh: I hope they lived well and were happy after they left. :)

    I remember once Wanda had me read a KR on me which I just read & handed back with no comment. She looked at me & said " You do realize the person that wrote this was insane, right"?
    With both then had a good laugh & that ended that.

    I always enjoyed the good people so much !

    Glad to hear she left.
