1. Lawrence Wright tells Terry Gross about the belief some Scientologists have that Hubbard will return to Earth:



There’s a widespread belief that he’s going to return, and every Scientology church and his several residences and so on, they have his office ready for him. His sandals are at the shower door. He’s got his cigarettes on his desk. In his residence in the Scientology compound in southern California there’s a novel beside his bed, and they change his sheets on his bed daily and they set a table place for him for one at his dining room table. So there’s a sense that he might come back at any moment.
