RECENTLY ON "60 Minutes"...


True learning is always deeper than just the subject matter at hand. Whether you study chess, music, Greek, or anything else, you’re really learning about yourself, the world, and your place in it. Do yourself a favor and check out this recent feature on "60 Minutes" about a fantastic program our son Alex has been involved in that’s bringing chess to Franklin County in rural Mississippi – lovelovelove!


Here's a pic of Alex teaching a class back in October at the Franklin County Chess Center in Meadville, MS (population 450) -- love the Batgirl :)

Also, Alex and the Memphis Chess Club have just launched a chess program in the Shelby County Jail where he was impressed by the level of interest and motivation on the part of the inmates.  So proud of you, boychik!
