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.
