(From the Monterey Herald). In the wake of publicity for cryonics, Michigan state officials have ordered the 30-year-old Cryonics Institute (CI) not to perform more cryonic suspensions. This looks very much like opportunistic, publicity-seeking behavior on the part of state officials. CI plans to fight the order. "What we do is not what a mortuary does and not what a cemetery does," said David Ettinger, lawyer for CI. "We've been doing it openly in the state of Michigan for nearly 30 years."
