Re: Mike Rinder posted something important today 8th December 2016, 10:10 PM #14 Caroline Gerry has written and spoken quite a bit about Mike Rinder, because he was Rinder’s biggest fair game target for so long, and he continues to be a key fair game target. Below are links to some of the materials that inform their relationship, and to the small amount of correspondence between them. Over all the years Rinder fair gamed Gerry for Scientology, and had been paid by Scientology for that … [Read more...] about On meeting Mike Rinder

CommunicatorIC;1125734: I never suggested that Gerry should stop wanting Mike Rinder to "tell the truth." On the contrary, what I said was completely consistent with Gerry continuing to want Mike Rinder to "tell the truth." I said, "If Gerry didn't like that, I would completely understand." I simply explained why it was unlikely to happen, and why I would advise Mike not to disclose details that would put his family, wife and child at risk. I do not appreciate the implication that I am a … [Read more...] about Excusing Mike Rinder
It was thirty-five years ago today, I blew the cult and there was hell to pay. I was thirty-five. Now over half my life I’ve been fair game.

This brief email exchange I had with Mike Rinder in April 2014 is helpful for understanding the history and current state of our relationship. On April 4, 2014, I emailed Mike Rinder: Dear Mike: You doubtlessly already know all this, and for repeating myself I apologize. Graham Berry posted on Facebook about you and Marty Rathbun not assisting victims of the fair game you both knew about, and then Graham seemed to blame me for your non-assistance to the other people in our class. I’m not … [Read more...] about Reaching Mike Rinder
Jon Atack asked if I would write down something about the name “Jonnie Goodbugger” that Omar Garrison came up with for L. Ron Hubbard. Atack spelled it Johnny Goodbugger, but I believe it should be Jonnie, after Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. In October 1980, right after Garrison signed his contract to write the LRH biography, I gave him a copy of Hubbard’s manuscript for Man the Endangered Species, which was published in 1982 as Battlefield Earth. The hero in the book is the humanoid stone age … [Read more...] about Goodbugger
