	The last thing I want for Christmas is a flame war with
David Cosenza, but... there is more to a cryonics organization than
a company name.  There is also the people that make it up.  All of
the aforementioned organizations (with the exception of CI) have
undergone radical changes in personnel within the last few years,
so it's really a whole new ball game.  No one can tell you about
that better than ACS, who recently chose to move almost their
entire patient population from venerable Trans Time to upstart
CryoSpan.  It should also be noted (for posterity, if nothing else)
that many of the people now working for CryoCare and its service
providers bear a large measure of responsibility for Alcor's 
haven "proven itself worthy again and again" over the past 20
years.  It's not as though we are just in off the street around
