RE: Christopher Reeve Dead at Age 52
Christopher Reeve is dead. His death thrills me. Besides being one of the worst actors of all time, he was a liar and a nitwit. He gave false hope to many with spinal cord injuries. By the time I was 10, I forgot more information on spinal cord injury and paralysis in general, than he obtained during the last few years of his miserable life.
Like it or not, there have been no major breakthroughs or understandings of the spinal column and nerve endings and their regeneration in the last 40 years. None at all.
Christopher Reeve's foundation is total nonsense, with no medical abilities other than exercise. The main goal of his foundation is a fund raising machine and a "how to" for recently disabled folks on how to organize fundraisers to raise money for handicapped additions to their homes and $25,000 wheelchairs.
If I could wake him and give him another heart attack, I would.
