I was watching the recent episode of "Dexter," on Showtime,
where Dexter went into a women's restroom to confront his
ex-girlfriend. Dexter prevented a woman from entering while
he spoke to Lila. The boyfriend of the woman (Dexter prevented
from entering) came into the restroom and stated, "you aren't
supposed to be in the women's restroom! Dexter just left without
stating Klemp's seminar "change" message of, "Restrooms Are Unisex!"
I was so disappointed with Dexter and the writers of the show!
Really, I was almost expecting Dexter to say "Restrooms Are Unisex!"
However, even Dexter isn't that imbalanced and, therefore, it would
have been out of character for him!
BTW- In case people don't know who "Dexter" is he's a serial
killer of serial killers and is a blood splatter CSI expert with
the Miami Police Department. A new episode airs ever Sunday
night on Showtime, and reruns of that show are aired throughout
Thus, Dexter is as real as the ECK Masters or anything else
that the imagination wishes to manifest. Don't take it so seriously
it's all mostly entertainment and a distraction anyway! That's why
religion is so popular... there's something for almost everyone!
p.s. I wonder if any ECKists have named their Teddy Bears "Mahanta,"
"Wah-Z," or "Z?"
