Chess, Numbers, and Senility

A great bit from a chess blog talking about the threatened reduction and possibly demise of the chess column in the Washington Post.

It’s bad enough that newspaper chess columns in the US, when they exist at all, are stuck in with the comics and that it’s usually only enough room for a puzzle. I’m sure we’re also competing for space with mental jumping jacks like the epic vapidity that is sudoku. (They say that sudoku delays the onset of senility, but has it occurred to anyone that enjoying sudoku IS the onset of senility?)
