When You Are Very Very Very Incredibly Disgustingly Rich Like Me....

...only then will you truly love and appreciate chess as I do. I am just a simple (but incredibly rich) man who wants to do some good in the world. I have been sucked into this political mess because my filthy enormous swelling bank account affords me a modicum of relevance in the modern world. And so, with great reluctance, as befits my status as an unbelievably wealthy yet modest and retiring patron of the arts, I am quoted for no real reason by a NY Times reporter who mocks his subjects just slightly too obviously:

PS Did I mention that I'm loaded?

Alas, it's impossible to write an article about USCF politics without at least one person looking like an idiot. I don't think the NYT guy (who does have a regular chess blog, after all) was particularly overt in his mockery.

Having said that... Very funny post on your part.

funny stuff, but obviously some important issues are raised; are the charges against susan and paul really true? if so, whats gonna happen to them?

If anyone knows how to reach Dr Moskow, he owes me $600 and he is avoiding paying. Is this normal for rich people? He referred me to some lackey who is ducking my calls for 2 months now. The lackey has given every excuse under the sun to duck the calls. It's rather humorous and pitiful too. I would like to see that money (small amount for him, right?) yesterday or so. Somebody find him and let him know. I will tip you.
