Member since Oct-01-06 · Last seen Jul-23-17
NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website, http://leeduigon.com/

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via amazon.com.

  playground player: <optimal play> Thanks for the news tip, as grotesque as it may be. I'll use it on my blog today.

All leftid ideology is based on delusion. All of it.

  playground player: Does anyone not understand that the purpose of "sanctuary cities" is to create a Democrat vote pool?

And does anyone not understand that the purpose of the "borderless world" is to create a massive global government run by the same people responsible for screwing up their own nation-states?

One of your readers made a funny comment...

"Maybe someone can self identify as an 8 year old and gather up all the blue ribbons at some grade school event. A fellow could show those off with pride"

LOL!

Also, the cats and dogs playing the shell game were amusing.

Now obviously it's no good putting a treat under the cup because they can just smell it, but it's impressive when a ball is placed there and they find it.

They don't even seem to be looking and yet they get it right!

  playground player: <optimal play> Can we take refuge in this old argument? "Oh, well, all the times they didn't guess right, they wound up on the cutting room floor!"

Editing is now in progress for Bell Mountain No. 10, <The Silver Trumpet>, and the cover artist is on board to work his magic once again. I have no idea when everything will be finished.

Meanwhile, I'm writing No. 11...

How did they determine the ad involes
"a woman" isnt that a gender stereotype?

  playground player: <WannaBe> Actually, incidents like this have been common in Britain over the last ten years, at least. Here are some more.

https://leeduigon.com/2017/07/22/al...

As government goes mad, we also have examples in our own country. Who can forget the little boy in a New Jersey public school who was arrested by a whole squad of cops... for calling a brownie a brownie? Rampant racism, according to the Camden County prosecutor.

I don't believe there are many sane people left among the ruling class.

God ordained real functions for government at all levels. But statists drive government far beyond its boundaries, turning it into an omnivorous devourer.
