World Open has been moved to Arlington Virginia by [email protected]
How's it going Sam, long time no see. I thought I would check in and see who's still around other than you of course. :) Any word on who is winning (or won) the U.S. Championship in St. Louis? A friend of mine told me Kamsky dropped a piece in one of his games.

Senate Passes Internet Sales Tax Bill by samsloan
BREAKING NEWS: Senate Passes Internet Sales Tax Bill Here is a great issue for us all to fight. This measure gives the US Government the power to impose a world wide sales tax on all Internet transactions. As usual they name the bill exactly the opposite of what it does. They call it "the Marketplace Fairness Act". In a vote of 69 to 27 Monday night, the U.S. Senate passed the Marketplace...

Did the Boston Marathon Bombers Receive Outside Help? by samsloan
It appears that they had no immediate help in the planning or execution of the bombing. However, it is likely that the elder brother received training in how to build these bombs when he returned to Russia last year. They planned the bomb blasts to occur not at the time when the winners were crossing the finish lines but two hours later when the slow recreational runners were finally arriving....

The Police Did not Kill the Older Boston Bomber - The Younger Brotherkilled his own Brother! by samsloan
Amazing revelation: Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder brother, was not killed by the police. He was killed by the younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who ran over him with a car. The younger brother then tried to commit suicide my shooting himself in the next, but was not successful. This murder-suicide plan was probably to protect accomplices who may have provided help in the bombings. Sam Sloan

Militants from Afghanistan Attack Boy Scouts in Chitral by samsloan
It is not only because of the Lowari Tunnel that Chitralis favor Musharraf. Musharraf has been the only Pakistan leader willing to take a stand and fight the militants invading from Afghanistan and taking over places like Swat. This is the reason why the Taliban has vowed to kill Musharraf. He would have to be crazy to show up at a kangaroo court date under these circumstances. On August 27,...

Musharraf Runs for Election from Chitral by samsloan
Sorry. I disagree. I just returned from 11 days in Pakistan. I found that Musharraf is tremendously popular everywhere in Pakistan. Everybody in all areas of Pakistan are talking favorably about his return. Also, the charges against Musharraf are obviously bogus such as the claim that he "murdered" Benazir Bhutto. Everybody can see the videos of Benazir standing unprotected in front of unruly...

New York Times Article about Khalil Nuristani by samsloan
Thank you for this article but it contains a few errors. I visited Nuristan twice, in 1977 and 1978, but these visits were brief as I only spent one night there each time as it was illegal to visit Nuristan without permission. In 1978 I wound up in jail in Afghanistan, escaped, was recaptured and finally released across the border to Torkham Pakistan. I then went to Chitral where I met some...

Iran Giant Mutant Rats are Caused by Nuclear Radiation Program by samsloan
Iran Giant Mutant Rats are Caused by Nuclear Radiation Program One unintended by-product of Iran's program to build a nuclear bomb is the development of giant mutant rats from the radiation at the bomb plant. These rats weigh as much as 11 pounds and are still growing. Cats are afraid of them. Iran has dealt with the problem by sending snipers armed with rifles

My Royal Origins by samsloan
What fascinates me is the fact that I believe that almost everybody who is originally of English origin with a family line going back to 1066 or earlier could prove, if the truth were known, to be descended from British royalty. When a politician runs for election over here they often trot our the fact that they are descended from the British Royal Family, usually King Edward I, who produced a...
