    I am glad that the mantle has passed on. After having blogged on the Tuesday FT for a year, I took a break essentially to make way for someone else.

    Gaufrid, I’ve sent the email.

    Rishi, thanks for all of your blogs! I look forward to still seeing your wisdom in the comments on these pages.
