Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be
considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The
Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes
the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the
questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to
those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

I bought a new copy of HoM a couple of months ago. The BSO was a tad
reluctant to sell it, but seeing I was determined to buy it allowed me
to have it. I felt a bit bad about giving them the money, but, well, I
thought I'd given quite a bit more to the DEDF anyway. I just wonder if
any Finnish newspapers would be interested in publishing a book review
I might possibly write... ]:-> Of course, I'd be careful to directly
translate only small excerpts of it, and Xenu forbid I'd fail to treat
the text with utmost reverence, letting Hubbard speak for himself.
I could've bought a set of tapes describing the Markabs too, but didn't
even ask about the price.
BTW, I'm going to pick up a copy of the Finnish police records on the
Penet raid tomorrow -- or today, really . If I find anything
interesting there, I'll translate and post it.
PS. I saw Robert Marcus' threatening postings and his lame "apology".
Appalling! But clearly, it shows you're doing a darn good job (as if
that wasn't obvious already). Just keep diggin' up the good stuff,
Ma'am! I feel your courage is a powerful source of inspiration.
