May Christopher Reeve rest in peace. He was truly a Superman. However, he was not a research scientist. The referenced article below was written by a paraplegic who knew Christopher Reeve in person. http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/kelly200410210859.asp exerpt: In this and other public forums, Mr. Reeve made one demonstrably false statement after another about stem-cell research — statements that were taken as true by many, and thus diverted precious attention and resources away from avenues offering better reasons for hope. Ironically, in recent months he showed signs of realizing he may have placed too much hope in embryonic stem cells. But that misgiving was ignored by the politicized campaign for this research, which has increasingly become an end in itself.
