Modestinus, R.I.P.

I write to report that on the 12th day of January, in the year of our Lord 2015, Modestinus, the worst kept secret identity in blogdom, cyber-reposed after a long battle with irrelevancy. Having outlived his usefulness, Modestinus has decided to hand the reins of Opus Publicum over to one Gabriel Sanchez, occasional contributor to various publications and self-proclaimed know-it-all on aviation law. A traditional Viking funeral will be held in Modestinus’s honor on the banks of the Grand River in due course.
