Bob Park has never recovered from his rage when I gave his book VOODOO
SCIENCE a negative review in his home turf, The Washington Post, a couple
of years ago. Purely as a matter of petty revenge, he targeted me in one
of his weekly columns (which debunk any concept he happens to think is
implausible). He discovred my "CryoCare Connection" but as usual did not
check his facts, and consequently made some dumb errors. This gave me a
new opportunity to complain about his sloppy journalism. He actually was
compelled to publish a retraction in a later column, which must have
annoyed him even more. But now, two years later, he's still citing his
original, erroneous column as a reference. The man has no shame, no ethics
that I can detect, and virtually no knowledge about any of the concepts or
fields of inquiry which he attacks. Cryonics is a perfect target for him.
Fortunately it is just one target among hundreds.
