@metal-brain saidWhy isn't the DOJ doing that?
An anti-trust lawsuit must be filed first.
Why isn't the DOJ doing that?
Why don't you ask The DOJ? I doubt anyone here works for them.
@duchess64 saidTrump is a symptom of something deeper. He would have never been elected in a well educated, well functioning nation. Trump supporters aren't big on research and deep thought. If one scratches the surface, they would find a failed businessman, who demonstrated his cowardice when called to serve his country in active duty military, squandered hundreds of millions in failed business ventures, and been found guilty of fraud on more than one occasion. Trump supporters fell for a racist, sexist snake oil salesman in an expensive suit, and can't bring themselves to admit they were wrong.
"Is Donald Trump an aberration or a symptom of a deeper US malady?
The underlying causes of Trump’s rise to power must be addressed,
from taming social media to tackling inequality"

another politician like Trump, only less stupid.

Nine times out of ten ~ not 50% of the time ~ when I try to plug in a USB cable or flash disk, I have it upside down. It's uncanny.
More examples of little things?
@huckleberryhound saidIs this the final nail in the coffin for free speech?
With Google banning Parler from the play store, Apple banning it from the app store , and Amazon banning it from their platform. Is this the final nail in the coffin for free speech? Also What argument can Google, Twitter, Facebook et al have for being neutral platforms.
@johnnybike saidPlease let know how this goes for you. I've been considering how to do this myself. Organization and record keeping can be important.
I have been trying to search for the notes written by Steve Lopez but I cannot see them. I assume he has stopped writing them. I am not even sure he is still with us.
I am thinking of buying chessbase and methodically going through my old RHP games and extracting them via the email option and importing into a database for analysis.

@tefeather saidI've not ordered or read it yet, but the feedback so far is pretty good. I know the author (I.M. John Donaldson) from his tournament days in Seattle. John does his homework well. His books favor accuracy over literary drama, and I expect this one will be no different.
What do people think about John Donaldson's new book "Bobby Fischer and His World: The Man, the Player, the Riddle, and the Colorful Characters Who Surrounded Him"? I just ordered it from Amazon.

The plot thickens.......

Thankyou for making it cool to be an American again.
Thankyou for showing that we need not be under China's thumb
Thankyou for one of the strongest economic that we've ever experienced. Thankyou for what you have done for minority communities, and for the un believeable increase in Unemployment....

@duchess64 said"North Korea’s ruler, Kim Jong-un, has admitted that his economic policies have largely failed, and vowed to avoid a repeat of the “painful lessons” of the past at a rare meeting of the country’s ruling party.
Kim Jong-un, that's who!
In contrast to Trump, who likes to boast that he has handled Covid-19
perfectly and urges Americans to 'blame China' for everything,
Kim Jong-un has admitted in public that he's wrong.

Being willing to concede error is the first step toward learning from it.
