Like the Texas Monthly before it, The Independent does a fine job summarizing what happened as a crew of camera-carrying Scientologists planted themselves on a South Texas cul-de-sac, day after day, claiming to be doing a documentary on Rathbun, who was once the church's second-highest ranking official until he defected in 2004.

(For some reason, neither publication reported what we established here at the Voice: that there was no question the "Squirrel Busters" team was an operation of the church itself, supervised by Dave Lubow, a private eye who has long been used for such retaliation schemes by Scientology. Come on, fellow journalists: don't let the church get away with its lame denials of a connection to the Busters when there's solid evidence to connect the two. You only do your readers a disservice by not pointing this out.)
