Don't Get Forked Over

Like most of you I play chess. I love forking my
opponents, that is, positioning a piece so that no matter what he does,
my opponent loses a piece of equal or greater value and if I'm really
slick I gain a stronger position on the board.

Welcome to Canada, Mr Dziekanski

Last summer, my wee small Godmother made the mistake
of travelling by air from Vancouver to Edmonton (get out your maps, Yanks).
Why do I call it a mistake? Edmonton was, after all, her desired destination.
However, she never anticipated that "airport security" would terrorise her
for the mistake of travelling to visit family and friends by air.

operated for the better part of 5 decades, starting in College. Bill was
a loyal trooper, always faithful to The State.
...But What Will He Do For Me....?
by Wayne Grantham
It's very much a shame to see great nations of people
fall prey to a demonstrably failed philosophy, but it's happening in most,
maybe all of the industrialized nations of the earth. Of course, the
non-industrial nations are already there. I'm guessing that it'll take
longer than my lifetime before the world returns to a new black plague-
and-famine Dark Age, but we appear to be headed that way. With the blessing
and abetting of not only the world's leaders, but the herds of the great
unwashed, as well.
