Reply to Donaldson: same as to Platt with this rejoinder: just because we 
have a unique product, don't assume that it follows unique economic laws. 
Eventually cryonics will be an industry, it will be traded on the stock 
markets of the world, it will have big and little investors all of whom will 
be interested solely in profit.  It will also have its share of scandals, 
inside trading, failures, reorganizations, consolidations.  It is the same 
with any commodity which is valued by a large enough number of people.  We 
are not there yet, but how could we not possibly get there eventually unless 
we are all totally wacko on our premises [which most of our friends and 
relatives already think we are, of course.]
