    A more interesting story is how these kooks bamboozled the government into recognizing them as a religion. It is, among other things, a scheme which signs very young kids to billion year contracts in "Sea Org" and then pays them less than scab wages while they rake in the dollars for the litigious and profane Miscavige and his cronies. It's a scam, begun by a failed science fiction writer who hated psychiatrists, probably because he was so clearly in need of one.

    Canada - where a pack of smokes is ten bucks and a heart transplant is free.
