Indeed, Paul, indeed.

I think the TS should render a public apology.  That would not only put the
terrible acts of CWL to its "best on could hope for" rest - but also show
that the TS is not like those "other" religious organizations we so mock.

It is in cases such as this where the Heart of an organization is tested. . .
