Scientology's 2014 in review: So long to another great year in the Bunker! - 2014-12-31
We hope you have something fun planned for tonight as we welcome in 2015. Whether it's a wild party or just staying home with loved ones, enjoy yourselves and be safe.
We'll always be a little on edge as the clock strikes midnight after what happened three years ago - we had put a lot of work into a story we timed to appear right as the new year began, a primer we titled "What is Scientology?" We thought it would be a good way to start 2012 as our coverage at the Village Voice continued to gain steam.
But then, just some twenty minutes later or so, we started getting peppered with emails from readers all over the country. Had we seen this remarkable message that had been sent out by former church official Debbie Cook? Well, you may know the rest. Cook struck a blow that was the biggest salvo since the 2009 "Truth Rundown" series in the Tampa Bay Times, and Scientology is still feeling its effects.
