For anyone else the above should be in the past tense as LRH is dead. In LRH's case sadly it is true. Even death didn't prevent him from churning out some of the worst science fiction to have ever darkened a published page.schnor said:Personally, I have nothing against LRH, he makes money - and has done a good job, but making money from other peoples insecurities is not palatable.
Wasn't it just that they had to give it a code of its own for the sake of the poor data inputters?Has anyone heard of Jedi leaping off the census form to become a religion in more than simply name after its recognition as such following the recent national census?
