Memo Of The Week
by Mark Scaramella, January 25, 2012
To: The County of Mendocino, 501 Low Gap Road, Ukiah, California
To whom it may concern:
This letter is religious in nature. It concerns the City of Ten-Thousand Buddhas (CCTB) located in Talmage, California. Please forward this letter to the government in Talmage.
I have reason to believe that the religious institution, The City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, does not provide protection to the surrounding community. Several years ago I attended a religious activity that lasted for a week. While I was there I was told by a female member of the Buddhist order, a Mrs. Chen, that one morning the community at CTTB awoke to find the grounds covered with snakes. Mrs. Chen attributed this invasion to a sinister, spiritual force at work. It is possible this evil force could invade the entire city of Talmage in an attack on CTTB.
My claim is startling but reasonable to a religiously minded person. I fear for the safety of the residents of Talmage.
