i’m not a big entertainment guy. it’s just not something that’s important to me. for example, i’ve never seen a movie with tom cruise; couldn’t even name one; nor could i name any women he’s had relationships with. a few weeks ago i saw his interview video (that scientology has been trying their hardest to suppress) and thought; “this guy’s whack”. that was about all.

this evening, chatting with an internet friend, i found out that he’d grown up near the benedict canyon house where charles manson’s “family” murdered sharon tate and four others in 1969. i’d read the bugliosi book about the murders years ago, i think for a course assignment, but my friend’s closeness to the situation made me want to refresh my memory. as usual, google pointed me to thousands of sites including youtube videos of charles manson being interviewed in prison and at his parole hearings. i mentioned earlier that i’m not into entertainment, and i’d include network news in that category, so the manson videos were new to me (i will say that geraldo was a media whore before media whoring was cool).

maybe it was because i’d seen the cruise interview recently, but a few minutes into the manson vids i thought i saw something. there was a commonality between manson’s affected speach and tom cruise’s. the psychologists would say it was their delusions, a religious person might attribute it to demons or some kind of spiritual issue. but there was definitely something.

so i went back to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and googled “charles manson scientology“. BADABING – 20,000 hits! apparently the book i’d read documented this too, but i probably didn’t even know what scientology was at the time.

so cruise is NOT the best known hollywood celeb of all time to be a scientologist! did you know that mr. manson has received more mail than any other prisoner in american history?

at this point you might be thinking i’m the one who’s delusional. check it for yourself. watch tom cruise in his scientology interview. or even his oprah couch-jumping episode. then watch some of the manson footage. i think the two share something. in fact, i think i could even give the something a name.
