TITLE: "The fact is, there is a single source of all your problems, stress, unhappiness and self-doubt. It’s called the reactive mind - the hidden part of your mind that stores all painful experiences and then uses them against you."

In her own words, Susan Sabo:

Support for LAist comes from
and this is her. When J and I were walking about Hollywood Blvd a couple of weeks ago, the woman on the right approached me about taking some kind of test. (This is the L Ron Hubbard Scientologist storefront.) I said no thanks and kept walking, but I noticed the way the guy on the left was sitting and stopped to take a picture of him.

Well! C U Next Tuesday jumped out of her chair and ran at me, she was just about to grab my camera and then stopped herself, and she and I got into a fight about my taking pictures. Public sidewalk, blah blah blah, call the police, blah blah blah, just go away, blah blah blah, where's all the Scientologist love?

Photographers of LA: I think these people are harboring a secret desire to have their picture taken. Please visit them and do so immediately. If I recall, they're near Frederick's of Hollywood.
