Hi everyone!

Some comments.

1. When my brain tumor might have killed me, I studied what was done in
   such cases. Basically a cryonics patient would starve him/herself.
   Yes, this caused problems, but it was done in cases in which NOT
   starving yourself would cause far more damage. I wish that more
   people on Cryonet talked about their own experiences and the policies
   of their organization rather than simply coming up with plans for 
   suicide which very well might fail to work.

   So far as I know, this method is still used when necessary.

2. I continue to note people who are not subscribing to PERIASTRON 
   reporting science news of the kind I cover there. Sometimes it's
   not the exact same article, sometimes it is. If there is anything
   that makes PERIASTRON difficult, I'd like to know ... after all,
   I'd like to increase my subscriber list. I'd be the last person
   to claim that such news articles are useless, but I do wonder why
   the reporters don't take more trouble to get them.

   After all, SCIENCE and the various NATURE periodicals are far from
   the only sources of science relating to cryonics. For neuroscience,
   there are too many periodicals for me to list here. For cryobiology,
   the field is much more restricted... but so far there haven't been
   much news of that kind presented by those who summarize (say)
   relevant articles from SCIENCE. (And for those who wonder Why
   neuroscience? I will simply answer that it gives us what is now
   known about how our brains work and how they store memory, and it
   is those things that we want to preserve).

			Best wishes and long long life for all,

				Thomas Donaldson
