Response to Why Johnson?
There's plenty of blame to go around. In order:
- The press, for not doing their research. Johnson's reported that Ted's remains were mishandled and that cracking of the skull was part of this mishandling. We know that the skull cracks are an unfortunate but expected and publicly admitted part of the proccess.
- Sports fans, for blowing this out of proportion. Even if cryonics were run by a bunch of quacks, so what? Then it's just a frozen corpse instead of one eaten by worms. I don't understand all this talk about dignity for a dead body.
- Lastly, Alcor, for (assuming the reports are true) accepting a case with a hastily written pact signed by someone known to be suffering from dementia, rather then the proper paperwork. Getting my paperwork together was a pain in the ass. Why was this case accepted?
