Commentary on Regulating Alcor

(Found via the Speculist). There have been rumblings in Arizona about regulating Alcor, a cryonics provider. Some people in the cryonics community view government regulation as a necessary or desirable stepping stone towards a larger, more professional, stable cryonic suspension marketplace. This commentary from Rand Simberg is more middle of the road; it is a sensible examination of the current situation, and points out some of the pitfalls and possibly unethical actors in this play.
