If you like nature, go out and camp, hike, take pictures, paint, roll in the dirt I realize that we have to kill to live, but when we take pleasure in the killing, that's a problem. On tv we have a couple of hunting channels. I was watching with fascination and disgust as a female model with a high powered rifle was stalking a zebra--a zebra! A zebra is a striped horse, right? I guess this is why every wild animal on earth avoids human contact at all costs and why thousands of species have disappeared ( not all on account of man). So, i guess chess is a pretty harmless activity in comparison.
