[what is this?]
Raymond Allen Weinstein, born in New York City, was an IM who had a very short chess career. He was US Junior Champion in 1958, 3rd in the US 1960-61 Championship and played on board six for the 1960 US Olympiad team at Leipzig. His last tournament was the 1963-64 US Championship, where he finished 7th.

Weinstein graduated from Brooklyn College in 1963 with a degree in Psychology; it was around this time that he began to manifest symptoms of mental illness, described by some as schizophrenia. In 1964 he killed an elderly roommate after an argument, and since then he has been confined in mental institutions.

  Shams: A couple nice ones from Auden:

<No one could ever inveigle
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Into offering the slightest apology
For his Phenomenology.>


Had too much to say:
He could never quite
Leave the paper white.>

and one final by Louis Untermeyer:

<Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Lived upon venison;
Not cheap, I fear,
Because venison's deer.>

  tpstar: The Tragedy of Wesley So
His own fans made him go
Called him "kid" and harped on his rating too
The Barangay Wesley sacrificed their favorite unique precious carabou

  OhioChessFan: <Shams: "Reluctant schoolchild," eh? I foresee wild success among this crowd.>

Maybe with some practice we'll work up to that.

Making eternal tracks
Always lived life to the Macs

  Shams: If anyone needs prompting:
Oct-08-11  I play the Fred: The Phillies of Delphia,
did make some pitchers wealthier.
still lost one-zip at that;
should they have bought a bat?
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yankees and Phillies
A couple of sillies
Tried to spend their way to success
But have little to show for their prolifgate excess
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Al Davis, Raider's owner
Was his own man, such a loner
NFL's gadfly loud and brash
Truly the man in black, not Johnny Cash
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Unbelievable
Joe Paterno covered up
A friend's child abuse
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Andy Rooney
Slightly loony
Started his weekly whine
On 60 Minutes' minute 59
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Frazier, Smokin' Joe
Tough as nails, head to toe
It's such a riddle
Why he was Ali's second fiddle

At 22, too young to die
Founder of Diaspora
Lives no mora

A staple of New Year's Eve

Made a fool of himself and
Lost game 8 so quickly
He was finished academically.

  FSR: I'd like to trouble you
with the sad tale of young Ray W.
A promising lad,
he went totally mad.
They locked him up in Kirby

After a wonderful ride
Everyone wishes they were JR
But I would rather have Barbara Eden call me Master when she popped out of the jar

When blindfolded with Judit
Could still concentrate

  OhioChessFan: Alas, songwriter Gerry Goffin
Today he lies in a coffin
Wrote a million great tunes
With Carole King but he's gone too soon
