I wish you success in that endeavor!

I'm also serious, BTW, in helping to pitch stories about cryonics to the media. One of the aspects of media coverage on cryonics has had somewhat reactionary tone--the producers of a show think up their story idea and go find someone who wants to be frozen to say a few words. That person has very little control over how they are portrayed. We could easily elevate the tone of that portrayal by proactively approaching producers with a specific story idea and background information.

I haven't tackled it before, because the LES in my area got a five-page cover story in the City Paper, which is widely read, and they did a good job of convincing the reporter to dig a little deeper. The story was written in a lighthearted and yet informative tone, and it has a wonderful front page shot of then-president, Mark Mugler, lying in the temporary cooling bin. More of that sort of coverage would only help, and I could mail a copy of it to anyone who wants to see it.
