Happy Birthday Master Seidman!

|Aug-21-13|| ||belgradegambit: Herb lived in Brookyln near our family and his wife Phoebe was a close friend of my mom. He had impressive billowing curly grey hair. He worked for the American Cancer Society as a statistician. He very much disliked Fischer bacause of Fischer's anti-semitic rants. Unfortunately I never got a chance to play him.|
