To quote Mark Twain,
"The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated".
Letters of condolence were gratefully received (but unnecessary).Some prankster set off the alarms by posting a comment on an earlier blog and off went the rumour mill.
I am sure that I could have capitalised on the news/misinformation but some 100 people witnessed me alive and well last night at Preston NE's new football stadium where the Credit Crunch book had its first public outing. And very well received it was too!
