OH NO!!

Readers,
I spotted a reference to chess--not just regular chess, but online--in an article about a serial identity thief! Read the excerpt below:
"She stopped showing up at her job as a nursing assistant, spending most of her time playing chess online, escaping into a world that felt orderly, sensible, within her control."
The quote above describes Esther Reed, the "Girl Who Conned the Ivy League," a fascinating, disturbing article. I thought you might be interested--chess itself plays a minor role throughout the story.

  1. This sounds almost exactly like something that would happen to someone who plays an MMORPG. Hmmm...

  2. Oh no! That does sound feasible. I am troubled.
