It was Jimmy. I was in Panama a couple of years ago and he is much loved there. They are, of course, rebuilding the canal for larger ships but are very worried about the impact of global warming - travel through the Arctic will be shorter and cheaper and could have a big impact on the Canal's traffic - would cut wait times though.
