What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I saved someone from drowning in the ice in Algonquin when I was a kid, about 10. The ice broke under another kid. I threw him a rope and pulled him out.

Anything else? I was one of the best chess players in the country in 1978 when I was in the eighth grade. I played against a Russian in a national tournament. I lost, of course, but then he defected.
