Steve Harris: "Much of the rest of the stuff in FROZEN and the debate of it, is surreal: it seems to me that the the people who don't want to cremate Ted Williams are outraged that his skin was accidently chipped."
This seems to be confirmation that TW's head was, indeed, hit by someone swinging a wrench, while trying to dislodge a tuna can. Though I can appreciate the point of view that " (only) skin was accidentally chipped," (which doesn't seem very important in the grand scheme for someone who needs a whole new body), I can't get past the fact that Harris, and others working in cryonics, don't see the PR impact of this type of moronic freak show. This type of foolishness can be, and HAS BEEN, very damaging to cryonics.
For TWrelated, (who I am sure will be reading this post), in answer to your question as to why, with so many people present, a Japanese woman with little mastery of the English language, took the surgical notes for your relative...she no doubt got that job, due to her status as Platt's SI.
