Super(spooky)man

Well, you must be knowing by now that Christopher Reeve passed away this weekend. I'm hardly a superman fan - but knew about his case mainly due to his campaign for stem cell research. In fact, John Kerry had mentioned his example while detailing his support for embryonic stem cell research in the second prez debate.

Well, coming to the spooky part... Before his accident, Reeve acted as a paralyzed person in Above Suspicion aka Rhinehart Theory(1995). BBC yest showed an interview he gave soon after the movie, in which he talks about the psychological impact a person would undergo when he suddenly becomes paralyzed for life.. little did he kno tat the same was to happen to him tat year..

He ended up being a symbol for those who wanted more of stem cell research to be permitted.. he lived for abt 9 years after being paralyzed!.. fighter!!
