    From ESMB:
    Some hint of her historical significance:
    My guess is that some people came to wish her cat had never been shot.

    As well as shooting itself in the foot, the cowardly cult of scientology has always been linked to this sort of act of abuse, killing pets is a scientology specialty.

    And look how both Hubbard and Miscavige are defined by both their cowardice and their cruelty.

    I pity any scientologist that thinks their "cause" is worthwhile.

    Like Arnie, Enid Vien's case is why I left Scientology the subject. It took me a bit longer than it took him, though. I hadn't known Enid had died—just somehow missed this even though I've been on this board and read ESMB.

    She was one of the most genuinely nice people I ever met in my entire life, and the world is a sadder place without her. I remember our conversations about Korzybski; she actually got me to read his stuff. Not sure I can thank her for that. :)

    There is one thing, if anyone can find the dox: I'm looking for a copy of "The Free Spirit" magazine issue from 1994 where Enid talks about her legal case, if anyone has a copy. Marty has a copy from 1985, but that's not the right year. If it's online somewhere, my google-fu has failed.

    Cult of cowardice showing it's yellow colors again.

    It's why the "Volunteer Ministers" wear yellow coats.

    I was traveling and went to see a hearing Dennis Erlich had in San Diego. I think child support, trying to bankrupt him while he was fighting the copyright case. Enid was on A.r.s, and I thought I would see if we could meet somewhere the night before. She suggested that we have dinner at her house, which was fine with me. I knew she was from England, so I was expecting a rather prim and proper person, but I didn't know what to expect. She picked me up at my hotel in a well maintained old green Jaguar, she was wearing leopard print tights, and the car was driven by her husband, a 300 lb. Samoan (I think) bodybuilder whose name escapes me. We had a lovely dinner, I flunked the pinch test, and I will always remember her fondly.

    I'm envious. I spoke with her over the phone a handful of times, including one where she said she was glad that there was a settlement she could live with.
