Thanks for the mention, Frank. We reprint part of the original mission statement at the front of each week's issue, nearly 140 years later, that it is still our mission, whatever the medium (Nature even has several blogs now).Glad to read you have finished W&P. I look forward to your review. I read the penguin classic version many years ago, wonder whether to revisit in the new translation you have just read? Your review will advise I am sure.
