    In answer to Tim Freeman:

> Has anyone tried to persuade representatives of other cryonics
organizations to post news to this mailing list?<

   I don't know of anyone from the other organizations who have hooked
into this list or any other computer conversation anywhere.

[ Yes, a few people from other organizations are receiving messages from
  the cryonics mailing list.  I hope that they do not feel like outcasts
  when so many of the messages are Alcor-oriented. - KQB ]

>I don't understand what "...they could be revived" means legally.<

    It doesn't mean ANYTHING legally.  Not yet, anyway.  What I meant
was:  We cannot prove that a person in cryonic suspension is potentially
repairable, and therefore "revivable to life and health" anytime in the
future.  As far as PROOF goes, a person in cryonic suspension would be
considered "dead" by the courts --and by a lot of other people, frankly.
I don't think the courts are likely to use the word in any other way, such
as "resuscitation," which means simple recovery from lack of heart beat/
and or respiration.
