Gay Ribisi, our friend Mark Ebner has your Scientology plaques - want 'em back? - 2014-10-27
Our old friend and fellow Scientology aficionado Mark Ebner tells us that on Saturday he and his lovely wife, Michelle Scott, enjoyed a brief repast at HMS Bounty, an old-timey bar and restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard in LA's Koreatown section.
Afterward, they walked west on Wilshire, when Ebner spotted something unusual. It was a collection of what appeared to be discarded items, like someone had hastily cleaned out an office and had piled a few things — including a drawer from a desk, and some other items — in a pile on the ground. But what caught his eye, Mark says, was the glint of metal on a couple of wall plaques.
He took a closer look, and was stunned by what he'd found. They were Scientology plaques, the kind that you receive when you donate large amounts of money to the International Association of Scientologists.
