ZED VS. THE LIBRARIAN-2

In their second encounter playing "Stump the Librarian" (strip version), Zed and The Librarian square off over the question of the IRS tax exemption for Scientology organizations coming soon after Norman F. Starkey had gathered up all of L. Ron Hubbards copyrights—which he would then hand over to the corporation known as "Church of Spiritual Technology" (CST), home of Sherman Lenske and friends. Zed wants evidence. Zed, you came to the right place...


From: nobody@zeta.org.au (The Galactic Overlord Remailer)
Subject: ZED VS. THE LIBRARIAN-2

Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology


In trying to STUMP THE LIBRARIAN regarding the Public Research
Foundation's Press Release, "HIDDEN TIES BETWEEN IRS AND SCIENTOLOGY
REVEALED," Zed pointed to the press release, showing me where it said:

>> 2. The October 1993 IRS tax-exempt blessing on CST was granted
>>just months after Norman F. Starkey, executor of the estate of
>>L. Ron Hubbard, had finally secured control of every
>>intellectual property ever produced by L. Ron Hubbard.

Then Zed commandingly said:

>Evidence please?

GOOD QUESTION, ZED, BUT...YOU DIDN'T STUMP THE LIBRARIAN!

Oh, Zed! I just *knew* somebody was going to ask me that, and now I'll
have to *bend over* to pull *lots* of Library of Congress copyright
transfer records out of the bottom drawer behind me. Well, oh-h-ka-a-ay.
If I *have* to. Watch the desk, for me, will you? Or...whatever.

(Lots of bending over later)

Phew-weee! <THUMP> Here they are. In chronological order!

Now, before you wade through these, you need to know that once Norman
F. Starkey set up shop as the Executor of LRH's estate, he called
himself all *kinds* of things, so you're really going to have to pay
close attention if you want to follow this. What's the matter, did I
spill part of my salad down my blouse, or something? Are you paying
*attention* here? Please! Now. Here's a list of all the different things
he called
himself:

1. Norman F. Starkey
   Executor of the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard &
   Trustee of Author's Family Trust

2. Norman F. Starkey
   Executor of the estate of L. Ron Hubbard

3. Norman F. Starkey
   Executor of the will of L. Ron Hubbard,
   d.b.a. L. Ron Hubbard Library

4. Norman F. Starkey
   Executor of the will of L. Ron Hubbard

5. Norman F. Starkey
   Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B

6. Norman F. Starkey
   Trustee of the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard &
   Trustee of Author's Family Trust

7. Norman F. Starkey
   Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B
   d.b.a. L. Ron Hubbard Library

8. Norman F. Starkey
   Trustee of Author's Family Trust

Got all that? Are you okay? Dizzy? Do you need some water or something?
I know *just* how you feel. You don't think Norm was *trying* to confuse
people, do you? Well, look, it's simple: IT'S JUST NORMAN! See? That
makes it simple, doesn't it. Feel better? Poor baby! Let me just give you
a little hug. There, there.

Okay! Now we're ready to see the chronology of how Norman spent seven
long years tracking down everybody who ever held any of LRH's copyrights,
and got them to hand over the rights! Ready?

To keep this as simple as possible, I'm showing you just the names of all
the people who transferred their rights, and the dates the transactions
occured. All you have to know is that, according to the Library of
Congress, all these rights went to Norman in one of his alter-egos listed
above. Got it? Here we go:

And that was it! He had them all! Now, that wasn't so bad, was it? Oh,
my, now I think I've upset you. You're going to need another hug. There,
there.

Well, as you can see, once Norm had done his job, in April of '93, then
the only thing left, really, was that the paperwork had to get wrapped
up, and, well, CST--you know, Meade, and Shermy, and Larry Heller--the
non-Scientologists--and Lyman--with that *big* moustache...what do they
call that, some kind of a broom? Never mind. I can't remember, but I bet
it *tickles*!

An-n-ny-wa-a-a-z, CST had to get its "government stamp of approval"
(explained to you in another post this date) before it could grab all
those copyrights out of Norm's hands (crossing his palms in the process,
maybe?), and *that* was going to require a *BIG* event, a slick story, a
lot of diversion and hoopla. You know, like the Granada invasion, or
something.

The only natural choice was the IAS event coming up in October, just a
few months away, which would allow time to get everything ready. So
Meade's friends over at IRS accomodatingly waited until *one week* before
the IAS event--don't you just *love* coincidences like that? I do!--before
they wrote their letters, and Davey made *real sure* he didn't *mention*
CST, or the fact that Meade had *worked* for the IRS and all (MUM's the
WORD) at the *BIG EVENT*. So everybody was, like, *bah-lown* a-way by this
*BIG WIN*, so, of course, nobody was paying any attention when November
29th came, and Norm handed over all 7,730 copyrights that he had
collected, right over to CST, and to that dedicated non-Scientologist,
Sherman Lenske, and his buddies. See?

And those guys started "doing business as" the "L. Ron Hubbard Library"
the *very same day*! Ha-ha! And they aren't even Scientologists! Ha! What
a great joke on old Hubbie, don't you think? Say, I wonder if *they* need
a cute, sexy, breathy librarian over *there*? I mean, it's just *got* to
pay more than the ARSCC pays. Jeez, I mean, those guys control
*millions*!! And there *is* that Lyman moustache to think about...

Well, there's the whole miserable tale, Zed. Okay. One more hug.

---------------------------------------------------------------

NICE TRY! AND COME BACK *ANY* TIME TO PLAY...

STUMP THE LIBRARIAN.

Z-z-z-ip, Zed? Come on, Zed. Fair is fair. (I *did* tell you this was a
strip challenge, didn't I?)
