OK, I'll keep my $39 since I am pretty sure I already know how it ends. I am sure that there are hundreds of stories like this, though. I am ab

AD -- That would be pretty much my feeling as well. Once you assume a leadership position, then by definition you develop a "following". There will always be the opportunity (and therefore the temptation) of take advantage of that. So many of them have. Jewel

pbxguy -- Good comment (translation: my "opinion" is pretty much aligned :-) ). It sounds like you have come to the same spot I have come to which is trying to look for some outside evidence that there is anything worth applying energy to in any of this. I have seen "The Walk" and now, thanks to this board, I have a pretty good perspective view "from the outside"

kBOY -- Thanks for that excellent link. You (or someone here) referenced that blog before I believe. That blog post pretty much sums up exactly where I am at as well. I now have an uncle in-law (by my wife's aunt's recent marriage who is a scholar of ancient texts, has written a number of books and specializes in ancient Hebrew works. He was at one time a member of a group called

He was a nice guy. I wondered what became of him. A few years after I left the walk, I ran into him at a Franklin Planner class that we were both taking. In both cas

Lamp, Changed, PBX and Apostle, thanks for the welcomes. Looks like PBX is one of the original “Barn-stormers” in SD. I remember that place being cold in the winter and unbearably hot in the summer. I was happy when I returned in ’75 (or so) to find a new air-conditioned facility in place of the barn, for sure. I wanted to make a comment in answer to someone’s post (too lazy to go back and

Hi, This is my first post here. I have read through all the posts in this thread (a long, long, slog -- but very enlightening). I was in TLW twice, once from 1970 to 1972 and a second time from 1975 to 1978. All of this was in the San Diego (Coniah Chapel). I actually started "pre-Coniah" in RD Cronquist's garage. I was a close friend of Dave Cokas and came into TLW along wit
