Default Board Member Randy Hough Proposes Sam Sloan US Chess Championship

Let me propose as an alternative the Sam Sloan Fantasy U.S. Chess
Championship. Even the august Marshall Club will not suffice for this
one; only Carnegie Hall will do.

Of course, Onischuk, Kamsky, and Nakamura (realizing that it's
impossible to "defect" to a friendly nation) will be playing. But
there's more, much more! Bobby Fischer, his rights restored after the
Sam Sloan-led Million Man March on the State Department, proudly
sporting a tattoo of his newly-issued USCF ID number!! Ray Weinstein,
deinstitutionalized because of Sam Sloan's efforts and playing as
strongly as ever!!! The shades of Fine, Reshevsky, Marshall,
Pillsbury, and Morphy!!!!

And as Polgar, Truong, Goichberg, Hough, and the myriad other previous
skeptics fall to their knees in gratitude, the organizer, The Real Sam
Sloan Himself, will bestride the hall like a colossus, bellowing,
"Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"

Randy Hough
