    A note on the spelling of Jim’s name: it’s “Thomson”, not “Thompson”. Sorry. I’ll correct it if I can.

    Yes, isn’t it wonderful that he received such a tribute *before* his passing.

    Jim Thomson passed away this weekend. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and students.

Got something to say?
