Sorry about the subject of the posting. I did send the message to Mike Perry
editor of VMN and he has already informed me that it will be included in the
next issue. I thought that the information (and the publicity for VMN) would
be valuable and of interest to those on CryoNet and sci.cryonics (where I
*did* change the subject text).

In answer to Dave's specific point, the phrase "'tradition of fierce 
independence' and their lack of cooperation towards one another" was a quote
and paraphrase of what Mike Perry had written in VMN. (The complete sentence
from VMN is: "One difficulty, of course, is that the Project is to be a joint
effort involving different cryonics groups and their membership, which, as we
well know, have a tradition of fierce independence and an unwillingness to
commit themselves in this way.") I was simply being agreeable and explaining
how I had planned around that "difficulty".

It was most heartening to read Dave's enumeration of the many ways in which
different cryonics organizations *are* now working together. I am sure that
this bodes well for the future of the cryonics movement.

Me too.
