I am probably not the only one who caught tonight's (Wednesday's)
clip about Alcor on CNBC, and I suspect, that there will be other
comments about it here on cryonet.  But IMOEO the report was as
positive and as factual as we can possibly expect on.  It
contained a brief clip of Alcor's storage facility, which
mentioned, that the bodies were stored 'upside down' 4 apiece to
the dewar with enough room left over to accommodate five heads.
Barbara Joyce Williams Ferrell was shown bemoaning the indignity
of Ted Williams being stored there upside -down.  Quite an
emotional impact on a lot of people, no doubt.  However people
who are ruled by emotions will not be potential patients for a
long time to come.  Those governed by logic and therefore with a
greater potential to become a cryopatient, will see little
difference in the physical attitude of a patient in suspension.

Lastly there was also a brief interview with Greg Fahi.
Unfortunately I was interrupted at that moment and did not get
the gist of what was said.

I think the presentation of the dewars was positive and probably
corrected in many the popular image of persons frozen grotesquely
in ice cubes, as often seen in horror sci-fi flicks.
