Conan the Librarian: guess so. even average players know that when the Bishop is on h3 or their is a wedge pawn at f3, you have to guard your back rank.

Conan the Librarian: Something like this happened in New York City a few years ago, some guy who can't speak english ran from the police, and was shot. Bruce Springsteen wrote a song about it called "46 bulletts." I just wonder, though, when times are strange, like after a terrorist ...
