Corrections: The introduction to last year’s People Who Died feature (Dec. 28) mistakenly stated that it was a look back over the year 2010, not 2011.
In addition, our appreciation of Robert Ettinger mistakenly referred to him as the “father of cryogenics,” when he was, in fact, the father of cryonics. Cryogenics is the science of keeping things cold, while cryonics is the speculative practice of using cold to preserve the life of a person who can no longer be supported by ordinary medicine.
Finally, in the Dec. 28 issue, we mistakenly ran the second part of a two-part This Modern World first; we’re running the first part this week. City Paper regrets the errors.
