Jon Atack visits an org - ALSO: The richest Scientologist gets even richer! - 2015-03-07
Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and for more than a year on Saturdays he helped us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet. He was kind enough to send us a new post.
Jon sent us just a short anecdote this time, which only whets our appetite for more. But we know he's a busy man and has a lot going on that will come to fruition later this year. We'll take what we can get. Tell it, Jon...
JON: In 1993, I was in Chicago, working on a documentary project with Carlos Cornier. The documentary did not see the light of day, though some of my footage went into an A&E piece, which also featured David Miscavige. We had done a week of filming in England. Now Carlos wanted to add some American colour.
