Formerly posted as "Jim Bartle."

Starting today February 18 I am going to address all kibitzers either by their full usernames or by non-pejorative abbreviations.

I made a brief exception for <thefocus>. who deserved it.

Now I'm making more exceptions, especially for <big terrrorist sympathizer> because of his sympathy and justification for Darren Osborne's actions. Full Member

saffuna: Now two people who worked with Trump to overturn the election--Clark and Eastman--have taken the Fifth rather than testify. I would like to see them take the stand and assert their right, but I guess that won't happen.

saffuna: Yes. Haven't seen it.

saffuna: <54...Bxg3 draws easily :)> Computer analysis at Chessbomb gives a 2.9 advantage for white: 54... Bxg3 55. fxg3 Qxg3+ 56. Kf1 h4 57. Ne2 Qf3+ 58. Ke1 h3 59. Ra4 f5 60. Kd2 Kg7 61. Rg1+ Kf8 62. Rh4 Ke7 63. Rg3 Qd5+ 64. Ke1 Qh1+ 65. Rg1 Qf3 66. Rf1 Qxe3 Pretty complex, though.

saffuna: Oh right. Boxing. The world of Don King. The sport where who earns what is determined before the event, and who wins and loses doesn't matter.

saffuna: Oops. Just saw that <keypusher> pointed out that variation above.

saffuna: Gail Goodrich? Really? You need a point guard. Your options include John Stockton, Steve Nash, Mark Price, even Pete Maravich. All an order of magnitude better than Goodrich. Among shooting guards Westphal, Havlicek (early years), Mullin and several others were much better.
