Weeellll, maybe not necessarily completely closed. This goes for either 
cryonics organization. All that is needed is to elicite the help of some 
wealthy entity tht seeks ublicity for themsleves and cna justify the 
associaion wih a noted individual and a jaw dropping topic like cryonics.

A possible theoretic example could be a newly offered science magzine 
needing to promote itself by paying for the suspension ofnoted Nobel 
Lauerate X via he vehicle of doing an expose' article on the up and 
coming practice of cryonics and why would a man of such distinction even 
consider such a thing?

This could work for an existing science or technology magazine 
especially a computer tech one with the addition of someone like B. 
Gates or L. Elison or P. Allen, etc.

Heck! It doesn't even need to be a magazine. It can be any entity 
seeking some splash and willing to get a magazine or TV News entity 
involved ot expose' their offer.

Glad to have you back at home and having safely missed the storms! How 
faired your dwellings there in Florida? Gee whiz, 4 out of 6 Atlantic 
hurcs all in one month, gotta be a record! Makes one wonder... ;)
