Thanks Ian for those wise words from Rhis, so pertinent now. I think I've downplayed in my mind how influential he was for me in my 20s in the days of the MLMB. As you say, it was exciting to read someone who'd connected the dots across many aspects of life and to do so with such humour and integrity. Such individuals are few and far between. Of course he did get things wrong but as he admitted himself, we all have our blindspots. He could also be a skilled wind-up merchant and I can understand how some were rubbed up the wrong way by him. Still, reading through this thread, I'm reminded of his many witticisms that have slipped into our lexicon and how he genuinely connected with so many of us.
