The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,I was looking for a theme for today's post, and nearly picked the one that we used yesterday, since it's not hard to find old sources which give the impression that Kasparov announced his retirement on March 11, or even one that (in this surprising case) says so outright.
- The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
Still, Dirk was there, and Dirk is reliable if nothing else
so if we are to find an event that coincides with 11 March then we may have to make do with the Candidates Tournament, which starts today. Or, alternatively, yesterday - depending on which part of the front page you look at
or come to that you could have consulted AGON and discovered that the tournament actually began last Tuesday.
I assume the 10 March date refers to the Opening Ceremony. What AGON are on about, I have no idea.
