Default How many were interviewed for the web editor position?

Jennifer Shahade aka the Chess Bitch got her job as a payoff from Don
Schultz to her brother Greg Shahade. How many other people were
interviewed for the position of web editor? Was the position ever
announced? Was it ever advertised? I'm positive it didn't. It's clear
that this was an illegal political move by Don Schultz, Joel Channing
and Bill Goichberg.

For once Sam has brought up a reasonable request.

First JS's book sucked. Talk about being into ones-self too much.

Second her work on CLO sucks as well. She is late with topics. She
doesn't go to any major events herself. She has no background as being
a journalist or editor.

She has 2 things going for her - family name and she's a former US
Woman Champ.

I'd be curious what her responsibilities really are and how much she is
paid and what type of expense account she has.

WTF do you mean she's the biggest female in the US?

You mean physical in size or biggest name?

She's the biggest female in the US. No other woman even come close.

She has the biggest name by far. No other woman even comes close. No
other woman has even a column in Chess Life, websites or even published
a single book.

Susan Polgar has a website/blog. It's well know to those who play chess
and are interested in that sort of thing. Susan Polgar also published
two books with Paul Truong - Chess Tactics for Champions and A World
Champion's Guide to Chess.

A simple Amazon search reveals that, along with a nice collection of
Training DVD's she has published, so not sure where you are going with
that.

the most recent title is 'breaking through'
i even have an inscribed copy! with a nice note from the author

isbn: 1 857443810

google produces 354 references to that isbn, including links to Amazon, btw.

of course, i realise that i am writing to FalSloan here, or Sloan-lite, but
for anyone still interested in chess in these newsgroups, this title it is a
chessic resume for all 3 polgar sisters + a closing essay by paul truong

al lawrence sometimes writes here [or reads] and there is a colour plate of
him with GMs Palatnik, Alburt, Spassky and S. Polgar [Florida 2003]

flipping through the pics, there is also a picture i never noticed before -
it is with President George Bush Sr, and his wife, taken with the 3 sisters
in Budapest 1989.

i also note that there is a good early essay in the book, "The joys and the
difficulties of being labelled as a 'wunderkind'", and a note on the
'Angyafold' [Angel's land] district of Budapest. How strange it must be for
a child to enter a tournament where almost every other child is twice as
old, and then to win 10-0, then to become a master age 11.

She doesn't write any book. She doesn't do any DVD. I went to
Amazon.com and typed in the name Susan Polgar and nothing came up. I'm
certain you're wrong.

Jennifer Shahade is a WGM and 2-time US Women's Champion. Polgar never
won any US Women's Championship. Therefore, it's obvious that Shahade
is better.
