    Because if you were born in Hawaii and go ask them for a copy of your birth certificate, that's what they'll give you. It is literally proof in a court of law of citizenship.

    I ran for local political office in 2000 (before moving to Taiwan) and I didn't have to show a birth certificate or any other proof I was a citizen... I merely had to attest to the fact...

    There used to be a web site where you could play chess online. Can't remember where it's at, but if I can find it, would you be interested in playing against me?

    Re: Supremes facing eligibility challenge to Obama, again

    Chess.com I used to play there all the time but last time I was there (a few yrs back) it became kind of like the Basement here. Everyone was cussing like it was their first beer. Somehow you would think a chess site would get a better patron.]

    But if you join for free you both can play each other.

    what's your rating?? If you play you might know the guy who used to beat up on me in college-Evan Michaelides. It wasn't much of a contest he was an IM

    I used to be a member of the USCF, and had a rating of 2005, but that was 30 years ago. I am probably a B player right now, as I would guess that my skill level would be around 1700, after not playing for so long. At my best, I did once beat a guy named Englebritzen, who at the time was the resident Master of the Houston Chess Club. I won't mention that I played him more than 50 times..... Oops, I said it. LOL.

    that's much better than me-I stopped playing in college when My 1700 or so rating wasn't near good enough to make even our second team-the first team had Rohde, Michaelides, Levy and Tisdale and after Evan and Tisdale (a GM now) we got Joel Benjamin and Mike Wilder. I started playing again because my boy wanted to play.

    I never even learned the new notation!

    Evan moved to Texas and I heard he's playing again because his kid is pretty good. He graduated with me but originally was in the class ahead of mine (some drunk almost killed him as he crossed a street, and he had to take 5 years to graduate), so I don't see him at reunions.

    I am a traditionalist, so while everybody else was using algebraic notation, I was still writing my moves traditionally. LOL. However, I am not into fads. When Fischer was the champion, everybody I knew was playing the Sicilian as black, but I was playing the French Defense. Karpov brought the French Defense back into vogue after Fischer's demise. It is still my favorite opening.

    I have a copy of mine from 1959, so you can't tell me that it's impossible.
