Quote Of The Day

"Victory goes to the player who makes the next-to-last mistake - Chessmaster Savielly Grigorievitch Tartakower (1887-1956)"

From the Guardian today...
On the letters page:
"Eminem has an even more eminently respectable antecedent than Robert Browning: Sir Cliff Richard. 'Hey Slim, that's my girlfriend screamin' in the trunk' inescapably calls to mind 'Gonna lock her up in a trunk, so no big hunk can steal her away from me' from Living Doll - a song which always seemed to me to have dark undertones."

I see PopBitch gets a mention by Julie Burchill on the Cruise/Kidman split. The virus that goes by the name of irony spreads unabated.
