### Sympathetic? No, it's more like an immortalist manifesto! Caplan
is one of those uncommon people who can change their minds. I remember
emailing with him right after Dolly was cloned, and at that time he
was rather stoutly against it. He changed his mind, publicly, which
says a lot. The article is about as radically pro life-extension as
you can get without whipping out your Alcor bracelet.
