    Huge congratulations to ex-policeman Bob! I remember serving with him (and Sir John Marshall among others) on the NZCA Council many years ago in Wellington. A very nice chap and an excellent chess administrator - and not too bad a player either!
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    Excellent result for the veteran!

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell
