    Just before the demo in December I got word that two of the super beings
known as OTs (operating thetans) had just died at Flag. I didn't want to
post anything until I had checked this out but now that I have here goes.
Both of these people were big shots in the Scientology scene at Clearwater.

    Ruth Valko-Burness. Her and her husband Kirk ran a consulting business
that promoted LRH tech and Scientology. I don't know her exact training
level but I found her name on an flag OT club list three years old so she
must indeed be one of the Big Thetans. Anyway, she was on just about every
published list that I ever saw that listed members who came up with big
bucks for the cult. There is a Lisa connection here too. When Lisa McPherson
was asked to write a letter in support of Scientology for an area newspaper
it was "qualled" by Valko and Associates. Ruth Valko-Burness died of cancer
at the age of 48. 
   Ellie Blankenship, OT Ambassador, also died of cancer. She was 55. Like
the above mentioned woman she gave large donations to Scientology and was
very active on the local scene. I have no idea what she did for a living but
she must have been wealthy.

   Isn't it rather odd that these two women, who must have known each other,
died so young and of the same disease? Last year I listed on ARS the deaths
of two other Scientology big shots that died of disease far in advance of
longevity tables. One of them died of cancer too, I don't remember what the
other one died of.
   Perhaps we ought to rename the OT levels as the "cancer Levels." If
anyone who reads this can come up with a logical reason why so many people
are dying premature deaths from such a small group of people I would sure
like to know.
