There might be some, but I am not aware of any individual who works at gold base (other DM's limo) having a car. I never spoke to any of the people getting off the buses, only the radio carrying guard in the bushes where I offered him a Xenu flyer.

That's the case. Of the cars they used to follow me where I was able to run license plates they all turned out to be rentals. >AFAIK, there has never been any indication that Keith took down any

As above, the parking lots of the two apartments are deserted. You can't afford a car on $40 a week or whatever they are paid. >>I don't believe I've ever seen anyone claim that Golden Era Studios

That might have been an incorrect assumption on my part. Perhaps they were all out of gas. But if my sign did have that effect . . . . "Don't let anyone on the buses! Henson is out there with a NO OTs sign." >>__________________________

Of course, before the police had a bit of a heart to heart talk with Richardson and thug 2, their idea of "talking" was to get within 3 inches of my face and yell at me. >>____________________________

I tend to think of a home as a family place, a married couple or at the very minimum, a single person in an apartments. Consider Stacy Moxon Meyer. She was married, but her husband was assigned elsewhere and she was living in a room at Kirby with several other people. I don't think this fits the concept of a home.

I tried to get a photograph of a board with the apartments numbering at Fruitvale. Couldn't read the numbers off the photograph. I went back and just copied the numbers down on paper. The numbers went to Arnie for postcards. Because it was inside a locked fence, there was no way to get the numbers off the Kirby apartments. One thing I was after was good photographs of staff members to put up on the sites where people are looking for lost family members. But I got very few which were good enough. I was always on the lookout for Andre Tabayoyon's son, but never got a picture of him. Keith Henson >>Diane Richardson
