Half-day slacker!  Get your stats up!

It drove them bananas that we were wouldn't talk to them.

They did send out the kids to clean trash on neighboring streets.  This is a
good thing.  (Although I hope they got a good lecture on what to do if they
found toxic trash.)

Members and kids did replant some flowers in the planters along-side the
org.  This is a good thing too.

They also set up a lemonade stand rather than the usual E-Meter table.  This
was for the DFM cleanup crew rather than the general public.

There were some sidewalk cleaning efforts that didn't accomplish much.  20'
of sidewalk in front of the org entrance was scrubed.  Repeatedly.  That
didn't seem to make the sidewalk much cleaner, and since the sidewalk was
wet, this resulted in dirty footprints into the org, and any DA flyers
dropped turned into a pulpy mess.  At the side enterance, they did use a
pressure hose system.  Once again, they made 20-30' of sidewalk wet.  (I
didn't walk down and take a look to see if it was any more effective at
cleaning.)  I'd rate this as a stupid thing.  (Note that the evening before
Toronto received a massive amount of rainfall.)

They did scrub the sides of the org.  While this might have improved the
apperance slightly, this was offset by the closed Brothers Restuarant.  The
windows are covered with paper on the inside, and the sign taken down
leaving bare lighting fixtures.  It looks like heck!  I'll be curious to see
how long it takes Co$ Toronto to rent that space.  (Brothers had a locked in
rent rate from 1980, before Co$ bought the building though an XYZ company

Record number?  Publish the figures.  Gotta have those stats!  And how many
people said "Wait, this is *for* Scientology?!  Here!"

Since I handed out over 90 myself, I tend to doubt that figure.  :^) Even
using Co$ math and dividing by 10, we still managed far more than 20(0).

It sure pissed you off that we didn't say where Alan was, didn't it?

Amends formula?  You can say it.  Even the complete wogs here have heard
about the tech up to and past the OT-III level.  How much $$$ would their
amends cost them?  (Hell, I'm sure that at least one of them has been
Declared.  Doesn't that put them forever beyond hope of getting back on the
Hamster-Wheel to Total Freedom?)

Nope.  Co$ was busted in Canada for criminal infiltration of government,
medical and legal organizations, and the leopard hasn't changed its spots.
You're still infiltrating, as Velcro Kitty proves.  And I suspect the next
bust with be the last one.

Odd how you don't post the big win that one of your "parishioners"
hip-checked Gregg off the sidewalk and into the road?  Did he look for
on-coming traffic first?  Did he mess up because there wasn't any?  (And did
it happen at that moment because some other parishioner was tasked with
distracting the cop?)

A cthurch that condones assault and possible attempted man-slaughter
(murder?).  Ah, is this one of those religious freedoms that you speak of?
I think you should examine your own rationalizations.

Ron of that ilk.
