(The center is currently under investigation by local and state agencies for four deaths that have occurred there, three since last October.) We didn't name that source, but now, he's ...

Ron Hubbard, the prolific science fiction author and founder of the Church of Scientology, may have been judged “a mental case” (according to the F.B.I.) and “a pathological liar” (according to a Los Angeles Supreme Court judge), but to tens of thousands of his eager followers worldwide, the man discovered an approach to recovery that outclasses ...
