SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
NOT SATISFIED WITH MERE CHESS IMMORTALITY!
I kid you not! There is a movement in the USA to have Bobby Fischer become a saint! If Stan Vaughan, president of the WCF has his way, then sometime in the next year the late American world chess champion will become a full fledged saint. Apparently all of the necessary miracles, waiting period and other details have already been met!
HERE IS THE OFFICIAL PETITION:

WHAT IS THE WCF?
In the USA it is not uncommon for more than one professional sports federation to exist within the same sport. As such, the World Chess Federation (not FIDE) is a break-away organization that does not recognize how FIDE stole the world title after Alekhine’s death in Portugal, 1946.
Stan Vaughan has worked tirelessly for years to achieve international recognition for his organization, including running his own world chess championship cycle! Stan is also the current world title holder! (Should we be surprised?)
I recommend my readers to investigate Stan’s site and make up their own minds! ENJOY!
