            An actor auditions far a part as a psychiatrist
                      at a cult acting as a church


From Wise beard man`s site.. (above.)


I got an e-mail from an actor who auditioned for a Scientology video project.   A lot of actors get suckered in the same way.

Hello everyone!

My name is Scott Gregory. I’m a brand new actor, new to the entertainment industry, new to Hollywood, etc. I had just gotten my profile up on LA Casting and was thrilled to see that I had roles that fit my profile.

I am a retired physician, and I saw this great opportunity for a physician to play a psychiatrist administering meds to a patient. I figured, thats for me!

I submitted my LA Casting profile to them and was really shocked and surprised when they called me Personally and said I’d be perfect for the role. I was really excited!

So they give me the date and time. They told me to come to the”Celebrity Center International”. Wow! This sounds really good, I thought.

When I arrived, I noticed that the building also said Scientology on it. Since I wasn’t born yesterday (actually, many yesterdays!) I became suspicious, but at that point I was just really excited to have an audition. So I went in.

Once inside they again gave me all kinds of props, ya know, wow, great headshot, you’ve got a great look etc,etc. They made me feel real good about everything.

Then, before I could go into the “audition”, they hand me this form that required to sign my name in agreement with scientology religious beliefs.

Well at that point I knew I’d been sucked into a scam. I was just completely, I don’t know, I felt stupid, embarrassed, and REALLY disappointed. Moreover, I had driven 120 miles for this scam (I live in Riverside county), I had put a lot of wear and tear on my little tired out car (I may be a doctor but I drive a Toyota Yaris – great little car). I had wasted 2 hrs and 40 minutes of time I could have spent with my family, I had blocked out a chunk of time I could’ve used to pursue other valid roles. I guess you could say I was pretty damn mad, too!

Anyway, I wanted to get this out so that other actors won’t get fooled too.
Thanks for e-listening!

Scott

The form Scott was supposed to sign also said actors would not be hired if they were on psych drugs.   Hmm, is that even legal?  Anyone have a copy of these forms?  Anyone know the law regarding employment and medications?

But there’s more.  Scott sent an email to the casting director of the project:

From: scott gregory
Sent: Sunday, September 20, 2009 11

Hello Valerie and Marie,

I just recently got back from my 2 hr and 40 minute round-trip drive from Riverside to the Scientology “Celebrity Center International” for an audition. I went there under the impression that I would be auditioning for the part of a “Psychiatrist/doctor” in a “documentary on the psychotropic drug industry”.

There was no mention by either of you, in the breakdowns on LA Casting, on my phone text message, in the audition notice from LA Casting, or anywhere else, that there was a religious agenda, or an association with Scientology (which would have most decidedly steered me clear of your post) regarding this audition.

When I arrived, only then was I notified that the project was a religious propaganda piece, and that if I did not sign my name in agreement with the religious beliefs therein, I could not work on the project.

I happen to be a Family Practice physician, dear ladies, who over a period of 13 yrs has saved many many peoples lives through the educated, prudent use of certain psychiatric medicines. Because of this practice and belief, and only because of this practice and belief, I was denied opportunity for employment.

Now, … I blocked out an entire block of time that could have been used pursuing other potential roles. I wasted 2 hrs and 40 minutes of my personal time that I could have spent with my family. I put 120 miles of wear and tear on my little tired out car. And I used 4.8 gals of gasoline. All based on your misleading pretense.

As a new actor, I am disgusted by your sleazy display of self-serving, self-righteous actor abuse. It disgusts me personally because I am a hard working conscientious person who has been taken advantage of.

I do, however, possess some amount of personal where-with-all, as well as education within the field of psychiatry. I will not be fearful of voicing my disgust as an actor. As a physician and patient advocate, I will be looking closely at your “recreations” in your “documentary” regarding the use of medicines. And I may not be well informed of the legal ramifications of denying paid work to actors based on religious beliefs, but I will be looking into it.

Simply out of professional decorum will I allow you a chance to explain/respond. If I do not get an explanation then I will be notifying the unions, LA Casting, my coaches, all of my colleagues, and anyone else of Golden Era Production sleaze.

Terrible business Golden Era Productions. Terribly sleazy business.

P.S. Ya pissed off the wrong starving actor

And the casting directors responded:

Subject: RE: Golden Era Productions
To: “scott gregory”
Date: Monday, September 21, 2009, 2:09 AM

Dear Scott,

I had no idea and am truly sorry that you are a Family Practice physician who uses psychiatric drugs. Just as you didn’t know I was a Scientologist, I still don’t know what your religion is?

You submitted yourself on LA Casting for The Way To Happiness Film. The book The Way to Happiness is written by L. Ron Hubbard (who is the founder of Scientology) and that information is on LA Casting and I assumed you read it when you submitted yourself to the project. If I would have known you happen to be a Family Practice physician, who over a period of 13 yrs used psychiatric drugs and prescribed them to innocent people, I would have never selected you as a Casting Director. But there was no mention of this by you anywhere.

Marie Bystrom

Scott disputes some of what Marie said. The project was listed as “Documentary on psychotropic drug industry” project, which mentions nothing at all about Hubbard or Scientology. And his education and employment history are clearly stated on his resume and LA Casting profile.  Valerie sent her own response:

Subject: Golden Era Productions

The project you came in for an audition today is for The Citizens Commission on Human Rights, which is not Scientology. The film production company, Golden Era Productions and myself, are Scientologists who are producing the film on Psychotropic Drugs for CCHR. Please visit www.cchr.org for more information. We also produced a Documentary for CCHR in 2006 called “PSYCHIATRY – AN INDUSTRY OF DEATH” that you should view. I am glad you will be looking closely to our properties and I have given you a direct line to them. This property is NOT a religious propaganda piece and no where in any document do we ever ask agreement to our religious beliefs. There is a difference between facts and beliefs.

To answer you question on the “recreations in your documentary”, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights have obtained documents stating facts and figures Insert: they are not returning my emails requesting a copy of these documents about psychotropic drug abuse. Instead of having a black screen with the papers shown, we are doing a symbolic shot with a generic doctor giving a prescription to a child, while a fact of drugging children is read from the page or (what the film industry calls an insert shot) where a persons hand has some generic pills in it and lifts the hand up to “take the drugs”. That is what we are shooting in this film. That is going to be a very small portion of the coverage that will be shown in this film. The rest of the coverage is actual real footage that was obtained by The Citizens Commission on Human Rights. I will be happy to send you a copy of the Film once completed!

Every single actor that does an audition, signs a Pre-Employment Form, which is what you are talking about below and why you left our premise before I even saw you. You must have only been here for a minute. That form is in no way asking agreement with our religious beliefs. The Pre-Employment Form is simply to make sure our actors are not on drugs or drug dealer, as drugs are clinically proven harmful. Just like the NFL will not employ athletes who take certain drugs, just like the Police Department and Fire Department do not hire people who do drugs or deal drugs, neither do we. This has nothing to do with our religious beliefs.

Again, please visit www.cchr.org and look closely!

Valerie Light, Casting Director Golden Era Productions

And Scott responded to them both:

Hello Valerie and Marie,

Thanks for your reply.

I, too, am very sorry for being exposed to your fanatic views.

Look, religious beliefs aside, the fact that neither of you made any attempt to inform me of the very exclusive pre-employment terms for an audition that you sent me to is simply unprofessional.

Sophisticated business people don’t do that.

LA Casting and hard working actors that are earnestly looking for valid work have every right to know about your agenda.

The fact that you use Golden era productions to misinform people about potentially life saving medicines is at BEST reprehensible.

Congratulations, ladies, instead of recruiting an informed expert, you have gained yourselves an adamant opponent of golden era productions and your church.

Post Script. After having discussed this with some of my more experienced actor friends, I guess its pretty well known that your “production” company is just a sleazy cover for scientology recruitment. That’s Hollywood, so say they. Again, my naivite.

In response to Bud in the comments below, it’s true.  I don’t know Scott Gregory.  I haven’t seen the documents and can’t vouch for what they say.   I doubt very much they would say you have to be in agreement with Scientology’s religious beliefs to be hired — although most struggling actors would sign anything to get a job.   I asked if anyone had such a form.  I’d be happy to post it.  I think it unlikely Scientology would send it to me.

In the meantime, what is on the L.A. Casting website is a call for a patient in the same propaganda video. 

Notice the first ad clearly states they are hiring for a Scientology commercial.  The ad for the psych video makes no mention of Scientology.  Both pay a shamefully pitiful $50 – $60.  You might as well just join the Sea Org at those rates.  Other listings from non-Scientology productions are paying considerably more.

And as for the claim that actors won’t be hired if they use psych drugs, well, that has already been seen in other ads from Scientology businesses.   The Suddenly Slimmer spa in San Diego had this on their website:

“Here at SS we try to get our clients to be as healthy as possible, so we try to get them off ANY types of medication (the body CAN heal itself) that includes psychotropic drugs-anti-depressants. Also I cannot hire anyone who is on these types of meds. (I have alot of documentation on how these drugs harm the body/mind).”

God, what sleeze balls!!!  Using deception to get people in the door because they know people would run a mile if they knew it was Scientology.  Thing is is that's how they operate.  When they've got their bullshit stress test stands out they don't have scientology on them anywhere.  When they body route they don't say it's the Church of Scientology.  That's a point, I haven't noticed any body routers around any Scientology org's for a long time.
Wonder how scientologist's feel about Lisa McPherson or if they even know about her.  They are quick to point the finger at the psychs about abuse yet there's the Lisa McPherson situation that they have covered up and lied about.
What a bunch of brainwashed wankers!

      Google and Twitter Slow To Take Down Slanderous Impersonation of WBM



Last week, Mark Bunker reminded us that over the summer, some scumbag had hijacked his identity and in his name was spewing anti-Islamic hate over a Twitter account and a Blogger website.

We were shocked to hear that the identity theft was still going on. Back when he'd first told us about it in July, we figured it would only take a few e-mails from Bunker to Twitter and Blogger (which is owned by Google) to take down the offending accounts.

But no. Months later, some coward was still operating both accounts, trying to make it look like Bunker was an anti-Islamic hatemonger. Bunker's attempts to get Twitter and Blogger's attention had gone nowhere.

We've known and written about Mark Bunker for years and years. Early in 2008, the anti-Scientology Anonymous movement dubbed Bunker "Wise Beard Man" when he posted a video counseling the reckless channers to stop punking Scientology and adopt classic non-violent protest to help publicize Scientology's unethical ways.

Bunker's words had a surprisingly strong (if temporary) effect, and he continues to be the model of a calm, ethical critic of L. Ron Hubbard's wacky cabal.

But someone doesn't see it that way. In July, a Twitter account (@MarkBunker) and website (markbunker.blogspot.com) both showed up, and each began spewing hate against Islam.

Clearly, someone who doesn't like Mark Bunker decided to smear him with the amateurish, hate-filled accounts.

Bunker immediately notified both Blogger and Twitter that he was being impersonated. From Twitter, he received a couple of automated responses telling him that the matter was being looked into. From Blogger, he heard nothing -- even though he'd carefully followed Blogger's own detailed instructions about how to report such an incident, which included sending in an image of his drivers license to prove that he was the real Mark Bunker.

Months later, the anti-Islamic hate was still showing up under Bunker's name.

On Thursday afternoon, we sent e-mails to the public relations departments of both Google -- which owns Blogger -- and Twitter.

The next morning, Google called.

The offending website had been taken down overnight.

"We took it down because it violated our terms of use," said Google spokeswoman Victoria Katsarou. "Blogger believes in freedom of speech, but we don't allow material that promotes hatred," she said.

Katsarou explained that Blogger/Google has a flagging system that allows users to report inappropriate material. A Google team then reviews those flags and closes accounts when it's appropriate. "This system of community flagging works surprisingly well," Katsarou added.

That's all well and good (if a bit Orwellian), but this wasn't simply a case of hate speech. This was a case of impersonation.

Katsarou said that the site was taken down for its content, not for its impersonation of Bunker because, according to Google's records, Bunker never submitted the proper forms.

Bunker sent us records to indicate he did submit the proper forms, and in a timely fashion, but all's well that ends well, we suppose.

Google can claim that its flagging system worked, but we wonder if the Voice's e-mail on Thursday night didn't, um, speed things up a bit.

Twitter, on the other hand, hasn't so much as acknowledged the Voice's inquiry, let alone respond with a call.

On Friday, however, it also took action by suspending the fake @MarkBunker account. There was no explanation to us, but a brief e-mail to Bunker, acknowledging that his complaints had resulted in action.

Bunker responded by asking if Twitter would help him figure out who had impersonated him, but Twitter wrote him back that it would be impossible.

Google told us the same thing. "For privacy reasons, I don't think that's possible," Katsarou told us when we asked if Google would give us information about who had hijacked Bunker's identity and used it spew hate speech.

Anonymous geeks think they've ID'd the culprit as a second-generation Scientologist in New Mexico. But until we see more evidence, we'll remain skeptical. (Bunker has his own doubts, as well.)

Despite several months of impersonation, Bunker says his good reputation as a Hubbard critic is still intact. "He just wanted to make it look like I hated all religions, and that I was an extremist with a lot of hate," Bunker says. Instead, many people immediately pointed out to Bunker that he was being impersonated -- people who know him and realized that he'd never be behind such a hate-filled enterprise. "There were a few people caught by surprise by the tweets," he admits. But overall, the attempt to smear him was a total bust.

Bunker is mostly surprised that Twitter responded so slowly when they've been trying to get publicity recently for their supposed beefing up of policing impersonators. When it came to an actual case, however, the company was slow to react.

     Scientology Documentary: A Video Clip from the Upcoming "Knowledge Report"

One of the people who made the Scientology's Enemies List, which we wrote about yesterday, is Mark Bunker, dubbed "Wise Beard Man" by the Anonymous movement. I sent him an e-mail to make sure he saw it.

Today, I received this reply from him: "What a day. You send me this news and then an hour or so later I hear that my mom has died. I'm cutting my road trip short to go back for
the funeral. Thankfully I just spent a few days with her last week as I passed through the Midwest. I hope to restart my interviews soon."

Bunker is working on a feature-length film, "Knowledge Report," about Scientology. In the preview clip he provided above, you'll see several people who were on the Enemies List, like Amy Scobee and her mother, Bonnie Elliott.

I have to say, the production qualities of this preview are impressive. Bunker is asking the public to help him raise funds to finish the film. Go here for more details.

We're sorry to hear about Bunker's loss. But we know the guy. He won't be down for long.

Scientology, a religion well-known for some of its followers, such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta, has been banned in Russia for being found extremest and anti-social. France and Germany have claimed that some of its literature is even illegal. In the US Scientology has triggered a scandal too over talks of a secret tax deal. Journalist Mark Bunker has been investigating Scientology fraud since the 1990s and talks about his findings with RT.

             Scientology Apocalypse! Mark Bunker and Marty Rathbun Reveal Their Ties

For Scientology watchers, a stunning development tonight that, not so long ago, we can hardly imagine happening.

Mark Bunker, dean of the old time Scientology critics, has written a guest post on Marty Rathbun's blog this evening -- well, I would be hardly more surprised if a Michael Wolff editorial appeared in tomorrow's Wall Street Journal with a glowing preface by Rupert Murdoch.

Rathbun, who not so many years ago was charged with keeping tabs on critics like Bunker in his role as one of the highest executives in Scientology, is well aware what a surprising turn this is:

    Whatever Mark Bunker's views, and whatever I may think of them, Mark Bunker is a decent, honest guy.

Rathbun, as inspector general of the Religious Technology Center, answered only to Scientology's ultimate leader, David Miscavige. As we've pointed out numerous times before, Rathbun was an enforcer, a fixer, and went after Scientology's perceived enemies seemingly with glee. But in 2004 he left the organization and then two years ago began suddenly speaking out against Miscavige at his blog, "Moving On Up a Little Higher."

Tonight, we learn the surprising secret that when Rathbun needed help setting up his blog, he received that help from an unlikely source: Mark Bunker.

(I am having deja vu: 12 years ago, when I wrote about Tory Christman leaving Scientology, what set her on the road to defection was in part some helpful tech advice from Operation Clambake operator Andreas Heldal-Lund. The web: its power is amazing.)

Bunker is well known as Wise Beard Man, the calm, rational, and most influential of old time Scientology critics, who famously counseled Anonymous to rein in some of its excesses.

As Rathbun points out, he encountered Bunker at protests in Florida over the death of Lisa McPherson, and even then had respect for Bunker's professionalism. But still, it's hard to see these two as bosom buddies.

Rathbun is reviled by many in the Anonymous movement who believe he is too tainted by his time as Scientology's enforcer to take his anti-Scientology efforts seriously today.

And besides, Rathbun may be out of the official church, but he still considers himself a Scientologist. His blog is as much about rescuing L. Ron Hubbard from the organization he created as it is about tearing down Miscavige. Bunker and other old time critics take apart Hubbard and his "technology" as much as they do the church itself. How could these two be anything but enemies?

We'll let Bunker explain:

    I don't agree with everything Marty writes but I enjoy reading what he has to say and I've learned a lot from following his posts. I'm also indebted to him for exposing a lot of newsworthy stories since this blog launched. It's seems like virtually every day there's some tidbit that rumbles the ground at [Scientology's secretive California headquarters] the Int Base. Enough tremors keep happening and he might actually shatter the locks on the doors and free people like [president of the Church of Scientology International] Heber Jentzsch from captivity.

I've been watching Scientology for a long time, and there's one thing I know for sure: Mark Bunker does not make a statement like that lightly. You can almost feel the locks at Int Base loosening.

But Bunker knows the criticisms of Rathbun and Mike Rinder, another former high-ranking official who defected in 2007:

    There are many critics of Scientology who can't forgive Mike and Marty for their actions while in Scientology. I'm sure there are many Scientologists who will never forgive me for speaking out against Scientology. I'd rather look past that black and white attitude and find a way to communicate and curb the abuses that brought Bob Minton into this fight to begin with and that are now being hurled against people like Mike and Marty.

There's much more in the statement, as well as a plug for Bunker's documentary, which he's making with the help of donations. Sure, posting at Rathbun's blog is a smart move for Bunker, who could use the exposure to Rathbun's audience and the funds that might bring. But as the two now reveal, it was Bunker who helped Rathbun two years ago to get his blog going in a way that enabled it to grow.

I called Rathbun tonight to ask him about it. "I didn't even know what a blog was. I had a one-page web page, and a lot of people would tell me it's a piece of shit. Then Mark Bunker contacted me and helped me turn it into a blog," he said.

"Mark Bunker is a straight ahead guy. He's the guy that always counsels reason and has really stayed focus on abuse in the church. And he hasn't been trashing scripture and trashing tech. He really hasn't been trashing LRH," Rathbun continued. I asked him if he didn't think people would be surprised to see that they had joined forces.

"I don't think it should be that much of a surprise. He's been really focused on behavior and how the cult trashes people. He's a stand-up guy," he answered.

I also talked to the Beard Man tonight and asked him about his big secret, that he'd helped Rathbun get his blog going. "I kept my involvement secret because I didn't want to scare away Scientologists who might be frightened by my involvement at all," he said.

And why did he reach out to offer Rathbun his technical expertise? "Really, I wanted to read what he had to say," he answered.

(He did, by the way, think of Tory Christman's interaction with Andreas Heldal-Lund, he told me. "I thought, here's a way I can help.")

As for those who might question his showing unity with Rathbun in tonight's editorial, he said: "I think Marty's struck an effective blow at Miscavige's regime, and I think he should be applauded for telling the truth as he sees it. And if I'm to be honest with myself and say that I support people's right to believe in Scientology, then I have to support people like Marty who are trying to make a change. I don't believe in the tech myself, and I think Hubbard is more responsible for problems in Scientology than people like Marty will ever confront, but I think it's a process...It could take years to peel away the levels of this organization."

Bunker added that he's always supported the "Free Zone," another splinter group that adheres to Hubbard's technology while remaining out of the official church.

"I think Marty has revealed a lot of important stuff that may not be as much as some critics like, but I'm appreciative of everything that he and Rinder and other people at the site have done already," he added.

As always, we'll be looking forward to reactions from our readers, who will no doubt weigh in on whether they were surprised to see this development, and what it means for Scientology watchers and Scientology itself.

                Knowledge Report: Scientology Controls Reproduction

Mark Bunker came back and spent another day with me
to get the stories of what goes on inside the "CHURCH"
This is a teaser

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vCamOCnz_Q&feature=player_embedded

For 25 years girls at Int base were forced to have abortions at Planned Parenthood in Riverside. Sometimes it was as many as 5 a week

The reality of coerced abortions

In 1977, in response to the high volume of Scientology staff sent to have abortions, the head of Planned Parenthood in Riverside, CA (Janet Honn-Alex) said, "I just felt that it was strange that they would all make the same decision. Independent of their individual circumstances, they had all made the decision to have an abortion, no matter how old they were or how many children they already had. We found that almost unbelievable. And when we started asking more questions, in order to find out their individual motives, because we were suspicious, they stopped coming to us altogether."

                                          The Return of the World Class Idiot

I had forgotten about John Bowen Brown II who seems to me one of the dopiest guys around.  He engaged me in a silly exchange of emails and then sent a legal threat to me.  (Side note, Brown’s business at the time was selling legal services.)

Today I got an email from a reporter, asking me about Brown and Anonymous.

    Dear Mr. Bunker,
    I am a reporter who submits articles to Indymedia. About four days ago, a member of the group Anonymous came to Mr. Brown’s door, referred to a you and shook his arm at Mr. Brown. No connection was made between all of you until I entered Mr. Brown’s name into a search engine. You have a site (xenutv.com). On that site Mr. Brown’s address is posted while blanking your own address out in a letter sent to you by Mr. Brown’s attorney.  By your posting Mr. Brown’s address allowing the group Anonymous, who does frequents your site, to come to Mr. Brown’s door., your are stalking Mr. Brown. I believe you are in a conspiracy to do so. Why else would you  blank out your own address and not Mr. Brown’s, if not to at encourage harassment of Mr. Brown.  Its it my understanding that it is an implied threat. I live in Northern, CA and I am familiar with the severity of California stalking laws. If you did this to me you would be in jail right now. I would like to invite your comments. My deadline for this article is August 9.

    Regards,

    Anderson Grant


I get lots of media requests and am always happy to oblige any way I can but this one was incredibly bizarre.   I hadn’t thought of Brown in over two years and I can’t imagine anyone else has in that time except Brown himself.  I sent him this reply.

    I’d say your email does not sound like that of a reporter.  A real
    reporter might say there have been allegations that you are stalking a
    certain individual but you make the claim yourself.  You further
    suggest that there is a conspiracy.  Surely a journalist would know
    better than that.  These and other reasons suggest to me that you
    can’t really be serious.

    A Google search shows nothing posted from you except one neo-pagan related
    anti-Anonymous post:

    http://www.indymedia.org/es/2012/06/957140.shtml

    Isn’t that dope Brown involved with neo-pagan nonsense?  Are you a
    friend of the dope or are you the dope himself using a fake name to
    accuse me of some nonsense?

    But if you would like a quote I suggest this:  ”I sincerely hope the
    dope recovers from having an arm waved at him.”

His deadline is over a week away so if anyone has any further details for his story, feel free to pass them along.

As for his conspiracy, this intrepid reporter should learn to use Google because here is John Bowen Brown II’s name and address on the Arizona Corporation Commission’s page.

Your honor.  I rest my case.

                                      Knowledge Report: A documentary on Scientology fraud and abuse

ReligionNewsBlog.com • Monday March 31, 2014

The Church of Scientology is about to be exposed to lots of daylight.

The destructive cult should be used to that by now, but this time it’s going to hit like a ton of bricks — and no amount of self-praising press releases (just about the only way Scientology gets any positive publicity these days) will be able to undo the damage.

A feature-length documentary film, Knowledge Report: A documentary on Scientology fraud and abuse, is almost ready for release.....

                                     Wise Beard Man requests financial assistance.. having to move.. GoFundMe


On Facebook this morning..

As many of you know I moved back to Clearwater, FL to work on my film and to try to make a difference in this city which has fascinated me ever since reading about Scientology's covert actions back in the 70's and 80's to gain control of the town.

I've been renting a condo across the street from Scientology's berthing complex, Hacienda Gardens. Buses filled with hundreds and hundreds of Sea Org members come and go constantly and I have coexisted with them peacefully while living here. Sure, there was the time Scientology tried to have me evicted shortly after moving in because my next door neighbor is a Scientologist. They alleged that I was breaking the old LMT injunction by living next to her. They sent threatening letters from their attorneys to the condo association and repeatedly harassed them by phone but the condo association supported me and said they were more than happy I was here.

I have been very happy here but the man who owned the condo died from a heart attack and the family has decided they want to sell the condo, so I must move with my video production setup to a new home. One place I know I won't be renting is an identical condo below me which would be ideal. I contacted the owner and was told someone beat me to it and their application was sitting with the condo association in the process of being approved so better luck next time. This came as quite a shock to folks within the condo association and the property management company who told me NO ONE has submitted an application to them for approval. It also turns out the the owner of that condo is a Scientologist...so there's that.

So I'm looking for a new place to live but with the medical problems involving my hospital stays a few months ago and the subsequent periods of absence from work, the move comes at a terrible time financially. I'm asking for some assistance for the costs involved. If you could help out, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much. Mark
