Grrr. The gits are still lurkin' 'n' searchin' this office of ours
for any stray copies of Xenu. Two just came in this afternoon,
a young woman and man, both in their mid-twenties; both hanging
around, slowly prowling the campus for any remaining copies.
One of the people here didn't realise who they were and so handed
'em what he thought were the remaining copies. When the woman came
in, she asked if there were any more copies -- 'Is that all that's
left?' They wanted some to distribute to 'friends and, er, people
around campus.' However, our agent quickly twigged that they were
no form of genuine article -- the fraudulent and unfriendly
demeanour, the Scientology Stare, the ill and tired look. (Jeez,
Church, you gotta get people who look convincingly *human*.)
Our agent gave them some copies, then got the shits with these
people and sicced Security on them. The Security guard apprehended
them, retrieved the papers and sent them on their way.
We now know these two faces, as do Security. If only I'd been
there with my camera ...
This was moderately organised; they had a mobile phone. Him: short
black curly hair, clean jeans, check shirt, bad skin, stupid and
evil expression (a mixture of scared and sneering). Around 5'8"
height. Her: again bad skin (with heavy makeup), dressed like a
clerk in a lower-end legal firm (beige-pink lightweight suit).
Short black straight hair. Around 5'8" in height. Her: southern
European complexion (dark eyes); him, a bit lighter.
Give these descriptions to Security at *your* workplace.
You tried this one, you failed. We know what and who to look out
'Catalyst', one of the other papers involved in Xenu, has just
published its last edition for the year. Contained within is the
Church's reply to the Xenu article, which is the same as what they
gave me, which I posted a week ago. (I would be interested to hear
from anyone who's seen substantially identical slabs of text
elsewhere.) 'Catalyst' set it in Courier with 70% width. The front
cover features a little clip of the Xenu picture (as found at
http://minyos.xx.rmit.edu.au/Catalyst/xenu/clamman.jpg) and one
of the editorials is headed 'Out Tech from a Degraded Being'.
Hey, for those who would know: I know one of the stats is column
inches of reply times circulation. Is that affected if they also
nick copies of the particular edition in question as well?
[Please e-mail replies as otherwise I may never see them.]
