Silver linings of a terrifying global pandemic

1) Switching our subscriber classes onto Zoom and meeting readers in Las Vegas, São Paulo and Athens in the first session.

2) Receiving an overdue kick up the arse to produce a digital version.

3) The delighted reactions of readers to the issue they received at the height of the crisis which, thanks to our slow news ethos, contained not a single word about Covid-bloody-19. 

4) Signing off the new issue from our spare rooms and, instead of the usual long commute home, walking straight to the garden for a treble G&T.
