toward making a living worked well for Jim Jones too. Well, for awhile.To promote such a thing as their cult, “The New Life Program” iscertainly their right, I suppose, though a flagrant violation of the civilrights of all those in need of their assistance.It’s quite a simple exchange. The more assistance you require, the morerights you must have relinquished.Perhaps Mike Moradian can tell you that now. Or perhaps not.You certainly do not hear of the Mission requesting to get back the$50,000.00 they lost because of the appeal Moradian lodged againsttheir Cult of the New Life de-tox expansion. Which, of course I was andstill am totally in favor of. I like to call it Modesto’s only Christianmonestary. Because in all truthfulness and hyperbole aside, that is infact what it is.Then again, you don’t hear about Mike Moradian asking for a refundfrom the City of Modesto or the Modesto Union Gospel Mission of thefees he had to pony up for the appeal, though it might have been earlyenough for him to put a stop payment on his EarthCalc LTD. Check anyway. I would imagine he was probably compensated from the LaLoma Neighborhood Association’s tax evasion slush fund.Perhaps Darryl Fair can tell you that now. Or perhaps not.You certainly don’t hear him speaking up too much anymore, since hisculpability was discovered by the McClatchy Pravda, the Modesto Beewatchdog that he had headed up an incentive package for his grantwriter of well over a half million dollars. I am sure his Modesto Parksand Recreational Julie Hannon Director will still be spitting down uponhim another cash wind-fall - it just won’t be stolen from the HUDNeighborhood Stabilization grant fund this time.And to think, all she gave me, was a drinking fountain for La Lomapark.Perhaps Corey from the Modesto Union Gospel Mission can tell you. Orperhaps not.
