In the era of massive, straight up and vertical, 47X expansion in the wake of GAGII one could be forgiven for assuming that this would be most evident in the LA area — "home to the largest population of scientologists on earth" according to the infallible pronouncements of Dear Leader.
One might also assume that the boom is happening at the bottom of the Bridge with the massive international dissemination campaigns "sponsored by the IAS" and the enormous international dissemination center right there in LA, alongside the largest digital printing plant on earth at Bridge Publications and the state-of-the-art Audio Visual production facility in Riverside County so amazing it needs to be protected by 24/7 security guards, cameras, motion sensors and infrared cameras. And we haven't even mentioned the astonishing reach of scientology on the internet, or the new TV studio just purchased, or the 7 ideal orgs in the area, plus CC Int. And international management and the Flag Command Bureau. And Author Services and the IAS. The largest number of Sea Org members anywhere. It is a veritable cornucopia of amazing scientology pluspoints in the LA area — if anywhere should be experiencing the bursting at the seams expansion, it would be LA.
You would expect the Mission scene to be booming. Weekly announcements of new Missions opening in the area (after all, there are supposed to 20 Missions around each Class V org — that would be 120 just in LA) and the Ideal Orgs are supposed to be creating new missions and field groups like mushrooms popping up after a spring shower.
