Tom has been an editor at VT for around 4 years. I recruited him while he was in the Philippines after spending some time as personal counsel for the current president of Nigeria. Thomas spent most of his working life with the Nader organization in pro-bono legal work.
He was a close friend, mostly to Ian Greenhalgh and me. We stayed in Skype conference 24/7 for years. He was a tremendous asset in Syria and rock solid as a writer and friend.
There are so many of us here the same age, the 68 year olds, you don’t want to know how many. We have lost so many this last few years, forgotten quickly by the internet but never here.
He was so much larger than life, and we are running out of those folks quickly. I turned to Tom a thousand times for answers that existed nowhere else on earth. They are gone, he is gone. g

His work on this earth seems to be done and maybe he has now other work to do elsewhere. Slowly but constantly good friends leave this planet and in the end everone is alone from craddle to grave.
I had wondered what was going on as his comments and articles were noticeably missing of late.
Mr Mattingly will be missed. His writing was experienced, but quite youthful and visionary, I would have never guessed he was “elderly” in years from his writing, but for what it is worth, considered him an Elder.
It was inspiring to know he was getting the ears of power. Much Respect.
