I'm sorry to hear that The Independent will cease as an actual paper newspaper. While I don't buy it here in Belgium, it's always been a habit to pick up a copy either at Maidstone services on the way over or down the local precinct of a morning. One of those little anchors to the life I used to lead.

Whereas ... the online version is truly dreadful - the number of times I have either abandoned loading an article or the iPad itself has given up in despair. Not much to look forward to then with the embrace of digital only.

Elliott Carter update: I've listened to the first piano sonata & string quartet. Equally impressed by both. & if I could be as eloquent & mentally agile in 40 years time ...

It seems my crystal ball was not so grubby ... ... resisting the temptation to say "told you so".
