Dear Readers: My blog database was accidentally over-written and I lost last week’s blogs and comments. Thanks to the great advice and assistance from readers I have recovered all the text and the comments for Friday’s blog (May 27, 2011). I am unable at this stage to recover the comments for the blogs between May 23-26, 2011. If anyone has an archive of any of those days in their cache or copies of the posts with the comments then I would appreciate them so I can re-enter the comments into the database. I am sorry that I have denied a voice to those who took the time to contribute to our community here. So please E-mail me any snippets you might have.
Some kind readers have sent me some cached versions of the comments I lost. Here is a reckoning as at late Sunday night of the loss:
Saturday Quiz – May 28, 2011 (May 28th, 2011) Had ? Have 0 Loss to date ? (100 per cent)
We should ban financial speculation on food prices (May 27th, 2011) Had 21 Have 21 Loss to date 0 (0 per cent)
The role of bank deposits in Modern Monetary Theory (May 26th, 2011) Had 15 Have 10 Loss to date 5 (33 per cent)

I am looking for the tooth fairy too (May 23, 2011) Had 21 Have 0 Loss to date 21 (100 per cent)
Once again I am sorry to those who took the time to contribute. I still hope we can regain some of the lost comments.
