    Cool. Thanks, Met.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    I've gotta say, did anyone even notice that David drew with Jan Smeets? That's a fair effort just on its own, but have a look at the opening he used:

    [Smerdon,D (2466) - Smeets,J (2558) [A00]
    Hoogeveen open Hoogeveen (4), 15.10.2007
