Every few weeks, one needs to step aside from the chaotic hurly burly of modern life, quieten one's heart, and focus on deep matters of the spirit or, as we scientific types like to say, 'evil wacko cults'.
As you know, brave Katie Holmes rescued her innocent little girl from Tom Cruise's weirdo cult and retreated back to the modelling community, a nice, safe world where women with severe eating disorders earn fortunes by striding down catwalks with pineapples on their heads. Wait. Mr Cruise's weird cult sounds way more sane.
A reader whom I shall not name tells me he was tempted to join Scientology after seeing Mr. Cruise walk up the outside of the Burj Dubai skyscraper in the recent 'Mission Impossible' movie. I informed him that if he actually believes what he sees in the movies, he'll be a very happy Scientologist.
But I also urged him to consider Asia's equivalent to Scientology, a religion called Happy Science, which sends me press releases.
