7/24/2004 - Here is another E-mail I got from Charlie. He responds to my first reply.
Hi, Charlie, thanks for the email. Thank God I am not an intellectual. You might be on to something. Come to think of it, I think
you are right. Dam it, you are right.
I am insane. But I think your pathology runs far deeper. I hope you
been watching Dortmund and Biel because we had some great fighting draws
during these tournaments. The good thing about playing chess is that it's
not a fight to the death. You can engage in combat and if you lose, you
can simply switch sides and play again. Bobby Fischer said it best:
"that's chess, you know. One day you give your opponent a lesson, the
next day he gives you a lesson."
