I had a delightful luncheon with Bob Rickard near the British
Museum on October 9th during which he acquainted me with these
developments. Bob was upbeat and optimistic about FT's content
direction in a turbulent and challenging magazine environment.
He indicated that the November, 2002 (FT 164) had David Sutton's
full stamp, so the signs are good for the continuance of FT's
grand traditions.

Charles Fort wrote:"I do not know how to find out anything new
without being offensive".

I hope FT continues to irritate, surprise, inform, educate and

I wish Bob and Paul well in their 'retirements'.  I reckon that
you won't see them go off quitely into the Fortean night. I hope
Bob's plans come to full realisation.

Best wishes to Bob, Paul and to David Sutton on the future of
Fortean Times.
