Part 17: Hypnosis, truth serum, etc.

(I spoke to Dr. Cath [addendum 1997: earlier psychiatrist I went to, the one whose office the Scientologists broke into looking for my records] by phone on at least two occasions concerning this, and it was his memos on those two conversations that were later mailed anonymously to me by the Scientologists.)
