Hi everyone!

I note that Ben Best has joined ... CI! This is actually important.
First, I agree completely with his point that we should not waste our
time making negative comments. I too can find myself doing so, but 
would agree completely with Ben Best.

And since I respect Ben Best a lot, I am even more of the belief 
that CI may surpass Alcor. Perhaps not in a month, but over a relatively
short time if measured in years. 

In my own case, I do feel I owe Alcor something because it paid for 
a lawsuit to allow me to be frozen prior to "death", now some years 
ago. I did not oblige by "dying", but I do feel some debt, and now
cannot repay it in money. But I also feel that no debt obliges me
to stick with a group which may ultimately kill me, either. We'll
have to see how matters develop here. I suspect that CI will become
much more important and capable. Just what happens to Alcor remains
unknown... though its current Board would probably need some

		Best wishes and long long life to all,

			Thomas Donaldson
