From Mullholland Terrace of Griffith Park Wayist
In fact, and for the record, Box did categorically deny that he is or has ever been a Scientologist. He does not practice any religion. When I asked him if he had any religious affiliation at all, that was when he told me that he was probably still a registered Nazarene--the faith of his parents. My quote is 100% accurate, and the problem Phil has with the word "probably" is all Phil's and certainly was not mine. It seemed silly to me after such a categorical denial of an accusation that has only been made by Phil Jennerjahn and nobody else to include any further discussion at this time.
As for me lobbing Stephen Box softballs, I did not. I asked him intricate questions about people in the city. I asked him if he had heard of so-and-so and so-and-so, people I believe contribute in a meaningful way to city life (for instance, he told me he didn't know who Bill Delvac was).
If I could figure out what Phil Jennerjahn is running for this week I'd probably interview him again too.
