I want to thank first Robert and David and then the rest at CI for their 
continued efforts on my behalf. I also wish to thank all that have brought the 
1/3 progress to where it is despite the many obstacles and unforeseen setbacks. 
I am not disappointed in the least that charitable efforts went

different directions after 9/11. Our country comes first. Without the United 
States and the freedom we enjoy to pursue what some would think outlandish even 
outrageous pursuits, well all our lofty goals and hopes would have little chance
of ever in our time coming true. I also want to thank Charles

Platt and Rick Potvin for their kindness toward me even though we've not seen 
exactly eye to eye in some discussions. I feel humbled gentlemen. All in all I 
am hopeful and willing to do my PR part when the time comes and I particularly 
look forward to showing the world that the Cryonics Community is a

family that abhors death and loves and clings to life and wishes to include all 
humanity in perpetual life.

A favorite quote:

You can choose a ready guide
In some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears
And kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose Free Will
