A comment from an individual named in the following article:

I understand that a man, using various pseudonyms, is said to be to be "Miss X." Amongst other inaccuracies and rumors, I was not "Sea Org staff at Bridge Publications."

This author knows a lot of names, but isn't a friend of mine, old or new, male or female, and she/he has a shudderingly filthy imagination.

Other people named in the article are welcome to contact me.

While on staff in the Sea Org, I had personal knowledge of two Sea Org staff and one "public person" who suffered psychotic breaks and were locked up in "ISO" (isolation). I will talk about the Sea Org staff in this post. The "public person" is discussed in another post.

The first was Peter L., who was an "OT" and was Sea Org staff at Bridge Publications. His wife, Vicky L. was also Sea Org staff, and was the Commanding Officer of the LA Org. Peter was put in isolation (referred to as "ISO") and was guarded around the clock by other Sea Org staff who were OTs. One such person who was assigned to watch Peter and to make sure that he "destimulated" to the point that he was no longer "Type 3" was a fellow Sea Org staff member by the name of Bill Duckhorn. A big, strong, burly fellow, Bill was also on staff at Bridge Publications.

The whole affair was very hushed up. There was no announcement made to staff about Peter's having gone "Type 3". I found out about it from "the rumor line", which is the way staff in the Sea Org find out about lots of things management doesn't want us to know of or talk about. There is even a Hubbard policy which states, "If it isn't written, it isn't true."

There are MANY Sea Org staff at Bridge Publications that knew about Peter's terrible ordeal. The list of persons who knew about it includes Treasury Secretary, Ben Elkington; Manufacturing Secretary, John Mustard; Director of Income, Rosan Rich; Sales Manager, Michael Long; Sales Manager, Mike Golden; Mimeo I/C, John Toten; Sales Manager, Rick Findley; Flag Representative, Virginia (last name escapes me at the moment); The Auditor Magazine Editor, Diane Coletto; The Assistant Auditor Magazine Editor, Sue Baldwin; the Assistant Guardian, Steve Huff; and the Assistant Guardian Finance, Jae Duckhorn - just to name a few.

If you are reading this, please let me know, Peter. I hope you are doing better now. I would like to hear your story about what happened from your point of view.

The other person was Sea Org staff at Bridge Publications as well. Her name was Terry F. Her psychotic break was not due to exposure to the "OT Levels". It was rumored that she had "gone Type 3 PTS" when child was taken away from her custody. Terry was a friend of mine, and we sometimes used to hang out together with our children during "family time".

In the Sea Org, parents only got one hour per day at most to spend with their child(ren). This one hour included the time it took to get to and from the "Complex" (at Berendo Street and Fountain Avenue) and the Cadet Org, which was next to Celebrity Center (at Bronson Street and Franklin Avenue). This took about 10-15 minutes each way, which meant we only had about 30 minutes per day to spend with our children. Many staff were pressured, if not outright ORDERED, to remain on post during family time to get their "stats" up (produce more than the week before).

But to get back to the main story...

As with all persons who "went Type 3", there was no announcement made to staff to explain Terry's sudden disappearance from her post at Bridge. I just happened to find out about her having been put in "ISO" one day when I went up to the top floor of the Main Building at the Cedars Complex...

She was locked alone in a small room with only a bed, and a guard was posted outside 24 hours a day. Inside, the room was like a scene from the movie "The Exorcist"! She looked like a crazed, wild animal. Her body was filthy from her own feces that she had smeared on herself. She had scrawled obscenities all over the walls by using her own feces - the most crude things imaginable - like "F*** ME!! Eat SH**!! I want to DIE!! FU** me daddy!! FU** ME!! FU** ME!!

She had also smeared excrement on the walls and floor and all over her bed. She had ripped the sheets off her bed and had shredded them. She was only half clothed, and there was urine all over the floor, which combined with her other human waste made for a VERY revolting environment. Even in the hallway from outside her room it was enough to cause me to gag. It was all I could do to keep from throwing up.

Eventually Terry "destimulated" enough (at least this is what I was told), and she was sent back to her parents. I never heard from her again. I often wonder how she is doing. And I would like to hear her tell the story about what happened.

Are you reading this Terry ? I hope you are doing OK. I think of you often and pray that you are at peace.

Love, Miss X - Another Old Timer (and Big Brother's BIG Sister)
