More signs of the apocalypse for the Church of Scientology's bitter-enders - 2016-06-08
On Monday we discussed Chick Corea and how such a jazz great seems destined to be among the very last to give up his superhuman dreams under the influence of L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology.
But these days, the signs of desperation among the bitter-enders hanging on as Scientology crumbles are coming fast. We wanted to point out three items that caught our eye yesterday, thanks to our various correspondents around the country.
First, you just have to soak up this performance by David Pomeranz as he spent time busking in Times Square for the church. Pomeranz is a Freedom Medal winner. He's got an Emmy. His work was recorded by Freddie friggin' Mercury, for Xenu's sake. But look at the manic look in his eye and the croaking gack coming out of him like he's going to attack the passersby until they take a goddamn flier for a free personality test (or whatever the white-shirted staffers are handing out behind him).
