    Wellington's Blanket Man, Ben Hana, died suddenly yesterday, his final act in public being to wave to passers-by from the footpath outside Wellington Hospital. Ben was the black sheep of a strick Jehovah's Witness mother.

    May he rest in peace

    WEIRD about the mother being a witness. As to Blanket Man ... Mental illness is a sad sad thing.

    A sad story yes, and their are many, many sad stories we will never hear of.

    I dont know what the answer is , but I`m damn sure it`s not" GOD"

    Getting yourself out of a cult doesn't mean the cult is out of you.

    I know of a few Kiwis who were raised in doomsday cults who went on to make a mess of their lives. My family has been involved with some of them. I would be very surprised if Ben didn't know my family. I'm sure I could easily find out who studied with his Mum, but I might not like the answer.
