From the above:

"If a lady says 'no' it means maybe." - GM Larry Evans

Lovely. Just lovely.

It's hard to believe that Kasparov is such a hypocrite in opposing a
Topalov-Kramnik unification match. As Evans points out, he is now
saying just the opposite of what he has been saying for 20 years about
the necessity of matches in the tradition of Steinitz and Lasker.

Pretty deceptive and much less "lovely"--you take a line out of a joke
and present it as an isolated statement? Try being fair.

FIDE DROPS MATCHES

As I wrote more than three years ago, the issue
here is turning the champion into a political cipher.
FIDE "learned its lesson" with Kasparov and, earlier,
with Fischer. The idea is to downgrade the world
title, no matter how deleterious the effect on chess
promotion will be.

The drama of the classical match is the only
method -- and drama is a method -- that chess has
found to reach the world via the mass media. There is
no substitute for such a match. FIDE understands the
point, which is precisely why it does not want a
champion bigger than the organization that would
control the title.

What will the USCF Executive Board do about this
threat to chess promotion in the United States and elsewhere?

Nuthin', is my answer.

POLITICALLY INCORRECT?

Attributing "an old joke" to Larry Evans, then? That sexist statement

can't be attributed to anyone because it's so old. -- David Ames

The joke about the diplomat and the lady is
largely true, which is why it raises a smile. You can
talk about whether the joke fails the litmus test of
one of the "ist" categories, but it is also amusing(ist).

You bet. He wrote it, he owns it.
