Probably a good idea for cryonicists in general to
whip up a press release for the media and counter all
the, ahem, misinformation put out by certain parties
with respect to the Williams affair.

We need to portray this woman (AND her brother?) for
what they are <snipped derogatory comments regarding
the WIlliams children>

First, I STRONGLY object to your negative
characterization of John Henry: he is a hero of
cryonics and life extension who went stuck with his
principles against a strong tide of public and media
disapproval and (along with Claudia) had his father
cryopreserved.  I think maybe you are actually
believing some of the, ahem, misinformation put out by
the media regarding cryonics in connection with the
Williams affair.

Second, if I were you, I would lay off the perjorative
adjectives directed to a certain litigious party
involved in this affair. It's one thing to give your
opinion, but you should watch what you say here--you
never know who might be reading these messages....
