Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

very nice diary, Ted, thanks!

Thanks melo.

is there any other game or sport that requires similar attributes, such prolonged, disciplined, patiently focussed aggression?

Well, not a game or sport, but legal cross-examination comes to mind. M. Gladwell,(OK, I know he's a bad guy :-)) interviewed about his latest book, referred to a lawyer who is dyslexic and had developed a remarkable memory, so that in day six of a cross-examination he would say: "But what you said on day one contradicts what you just said."

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
