World Wide Weird

The Australian has picked up the story I featured on this blog last Saturday. But, as you can see, what was originally in The Times' Middle East section has now been relegated to what The Aussie calls "World Wide Weird".

Only the uneducated and uncultured drongos of an Australian newspaper would consider such a story "weird".

Real shame. Having so many grandmasters is weird? Everyone should be proud of Beer-Sheva potential. Chess clubs and players should protest, otherwise this newspaper will continue with disgraceful practice.

Goran, Australia does not have a chess culture like in Europe. This is why chess is treated as some sort of circus by the mainstream media. Much of our press are ignorant.
