people in Miss Lovely book

I am surprised how many of the people in the book I have known or met and had no idea of what they were up to - Jimmy mulligan, Jim Meisner, Charlie Batdorf, Len Zinberg, Jerry Levine, Artie Maren, come to mind.

I am reminded of this story that Hubbard would glowingly relate on his tapes, of the assassins that lived on a mountain, and how they were led to believe in the 70 virgins, and rivers of milk and honey that awaited in the after life. And how they would believe in a better life awaited them, and would go off on suicide missions to attack the sultan's enemies.

Good people, doing bad things for a cause they believed was for the greater good.

These people I have known were pawns in a terrible game played by a sick man.

Well, now I finished the book and I found more - Lori Traverna , Bruce Raymond, Heber Jentzsch and Bill Franks. Scientology was a bit of a small club back in the 60's and 70' and 80's, ands it was full of familiar faces, but as it grew there were less and less people I knew showing up at events.

Len, I met you a time or two in NY Org, I was on staff there off and on in the late sixties as I raised money to go to LA to do the BC and go OT, and I was again on staff around 74, before moving to LA where I have lived ever since. I really appreciate your having apologized to Paulette. Though I am not of the Jewish faith, I guess it would be appropriate to say you're a mensch.

For those who don't know Yiddish -

As ever,
