    Hi, Richard. If you had kept reading on the live chat, you would have seen that someone said there is an extensive thread on the FCDC org

    Lots (although I'm not from DC). There's a long thread for FCDC. Maybe somebody will recall the name

    Hey Mromni....welcome! :yes:

    I started in the cult in 1974 at FCDC....and left (from LA) in 2001.

    If you have some recent ....or any news about Judy Cranford ( Judy Signorelli) or Houston Hancock...and his wife....or brother.... I'd like to hear it. Last time I talked to them was around 1982 or 1983....so old news is OK.

    Thanks so much,

    Leland

    Everyone, mromni is not only a new member to this board, but he's a neophyte with computers, so lets help him along.

    Mr O, keep it going. Tell us more about your experiences on staff. I know some of the stories, and I know they would love to hear them here.

    Welcome mromni!

    :welcome2:

    No, I'm not from DC, however I did spend a couple weeks there.

    I was actually Boston Fdn staff from about 1979-86, but the CLO/FOLO sent myself and another staff member from Bsn (Steve Goodwin) to DC org for a couple weeks to be the "advance men" for the LRH Birthday event over there.

    I believe it was in '85 but I could be off by a year in either direction.

    Did you see the videos that Sparrow made while protesting in front of the org there?

    I think Mr. O is done for the night, but I'll call him up tomorrow.

    He's a dear personal friend, and has some fun stories to share.

    I remember Houston and his wife - Cindy? - from touring to FCDC in the mid 80's as an ASHO staff member. I considered them good friends and very enjoyable to talk with. I would stay at their home when I was in town. Both wonderful people. When I got out in '04 I contacted Houston and he told me that his wife had died from complications connected to her diabetes. Houston was still making a living painting portraits of classic cars and was doing a lot of manning of the VM tents that they had going on in one of the monument lawns. I visited and he was still a lot of fun to hang with. At that time I was still intending to get back into Scn.

    Judy was listed as a Director of a cult lobbyist group in Washington, DC, which seems to have disbanded. She lists her address as that of her real estate agency on McArthur Blvd, NW.

    Glenn just walked away from FCDC, while doing the Purif and never returned. His wife continued on staff for some time. He was a sharp guy and ran a productive book unit in the same era that Judy Cranford was active. I wasn't there for it so can't speak to who was the kingpin. Abby Bregman may have been working with them too. It seemed like more professionals were around (John Lux, Jeff Cronen, Cranford, Smoak).

    There is more available on Glenn's post-Scn history by doing a web search.

    OSA trained me well. Pay & benefits sucked, though (i.e., non-existent). :)
