The IAS 15th Anniversary Event Picket
I've got to be honest with you. This was an event I was going to completely ignore. I saw the banner on L. Ron Hubbard Way a week before the event but felt there was too much going on to spend time on this.
But then I saw this anonymous threat posted on ars:
"Bunker, you are warned to
stay away this weekend.
You have been warned."
That peaked my curiosity so I ventured down to Hubbard Way again. This time I took the patented MintonCam. Once again the Scientologists provided me with much better footage than I deserved. As I pointed my camera at the banner, they turned off the banner light.
Then Don NOTS booked a flight to come and picket and Keith Henson announced he would be here as well. Now I had to attend.
And since Scientology had sent a PI to spy on me the previous weekend I felt I really should pay them some attention.
So...a very small but effective picket was mounted at the Celebrity Center and the Shrine Auditorium, home of the event.
Very soon I will have some video up here featuring Don, Keith, myself and FubarZ.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the Celebrity Center.
Don NOTS with his popular oft-seen sign.
FubarZ reminding us about Lisa McPherson.
Our sole handler for the CC stage of the picket.
Keith waves to a passerby.
That wave is greeted with a thumbs up.
My favorite Scientology couple.
This is R.J. and Vickie. I have met them twice before and enjoyed my visits with them very much. We have gotten along well but I fear our relationship will fall apart after this get together as they felt I was setting them up when I asked about Vickie's repeated claims that Dianetics cured her mother-in-law's arthritis. This is a claim she has made three times on tape and when I asked about it she felt I was twisting her words and setting her up. I don't believe I was but I felt it should be discussed.
Check back for video soon.
