Subject: TV show followup

In my post two days ago I mentioned a production company that wants to
make a 5-minute news item about cryonics, for syndication to many TV
stations across the United States.

For TV, you really need pictures of hardware in addition to talking heads.
Since the hardware at Trans-Time is uninhabited right now, and since Alcor
refused to participate in any TV show where I would be involved (for
reasons that remain totally mysterious to me), the only other place the TV
people could go was CI. This is exactly what they decided to do.

The irony here is that I would much prefer to promote Alcor than CI,
because I find Alcor's protocol more credible. But, Alcor loses the
exposure, CI gains the exposure, and I end up implicitly helping to
promote an organization which I don't think offers very good service.
