ATTACK ON SCIENTOLOGY - 1998-12-12
I was flabbergasted to read your Dec. 6 Style article about a Scientologist who died very unfortunately. I just don't understand why someone who went psychotic three years ago and died in Florida rated a huge story in your paper. She wasn't a resident and had no previous connection to the Washington area, so why cover this old story? I am a Scientologist and have been one for more than 18 years. The Church of Scientology has helped me in school, made me into an advanced-placement student and helped me find a wonderful husband.
Shouldn't normal, average Washington-area Scientologists rate coverage instead of a three-year-old accidental death in another state?
