another question that never occurred to me
DJ/travel writer-turned-urban planner Daryl Sng passes along this fascinating piece from the Boston Globe on why the queen in chess is so powerful. It's sort of about chess, and a lot about Marilyn Yalom, and all interesting.
Daryl's got some other interesting links and thoughts, and the occasional super-cute dog photo. First good reason I've seen for the "next blog" button at the top of the screen. Usually when I hit "next blog" I get some miserable teenager.
