Member since Oct-01-06 · Last seen Sep-19-17
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: <cormier> Your translations are just fine! They read as if they had originally been written in English--and in a lot better English than a lot of us can manage. The method you are using has worked very well. Congratulations!

Sounds like the Finnish are finished!

All liberals are <Denialist>s, that's how they rewrite the real world.

  playground player: <Steamed Colleagues> And if you're done reading about the law prof who denies that parenthood is anything but the creation of the state, here's a "spiritual" liberal who puts hexes on people she doesn't like.

  playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> The news this week strikes me as just awful--Trump poised (they say!) to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegals, all these demands to jail Climbit Chainge Deniers, Congress up to its usual inanities... You'd think we haven't got a prayer of avoiding being turned into Venezuela North.

But I do find some comfort in the observation that the wackos on the Left certainly don't act like they're winning. They're acting like they think they're about to be shoved off the cliff.

Maybe they know something I don't know, but which would make me very happy if I knew it.

I'll post the other article on my blog today. P&J sandwiches are now racist, too. Like the principal said, "That's your white privilege."

The only privilege I'm aware of having, as a white man,is being blamed for everything and being called upon to pay for everything.

If they think this is helping Our Cherished Minorities get a leg up, they're wrong.

But there is nothing the liberal desires more than a permanent underclass to be his clients.
