Some think I'm a bit sad, but for the moment it suits me. Are my actions harming a young whipper-snapper's career or prospects? I don't think so, but from my point of view in the last few months there are a whole bunch of people entering my part of the business and offering services at fire-sale fees and maybe they think I am.
When I officially retired from NATS at age 60, I got so bored that within 2 weeks I got myself a part time job as a FISO so I don't think you're 'sad'; we all need to keep our brains working.
