        I can attest to the fact we don't want them here. (Think of an organization run by people with the brilliance of Sarah Palin & the tenacity of cockroaches.) And they like to track down people to where they live & harass them in weird ways.

        Fortunately, we can chase them away with repeated chanting of "Xenu! Xenu! Xenu!"

          to give L-Ron the Hugo Award  for best SF novel of the year, they were able to get him on the ballot but the book finished last in the actual vote. Behind "No Award".
