Show Me the Bodies!

Thanks for the perspective, Matt. There must a thousand more pressing issues than backgammon for those who wish to nurture and protect our children.

Iím not sure sure how much time and energy you all have, but if you are looking to spend it in ways that help our kids, working to create a ban against cash prizes for underage entrants in a backgammon tournament ought to be a low priority.

When I was in college, the members of the debate team always used to ask, "Where are the dead bodies?" Are you looking for a good reason to change something? Show me the dead bodies!

In the backgammon world, they are hard to find. In practice, it turns out that backgammon simply does not leave a trail of profligate degenerates whoís lives were ruined because they won cash prizes as children in backgammon tournaments.

Itís fun to debate the ethics, sure, but donít get too worked up. You are debating the solution to a problem that does not exist.

Mike
