Oh man, Andy's more stupid than borsch.... IN CHESS!

Look, aside from being unfunny and ridiculous you obviously have no idea
what you're talking about.  Andy has helped facilitate and expand debate for
hundreds of high schoolers, middle schoolers and also quite a few college
students in Baltimore.  The fact that you're basically completely ignorant
about the Baltimore UDL means you probably shouldn't be jacking off your
sense of pragmatic righteousness with its specter and should probably get
more involved instead of mouthing non-sensical apologies for the status
quo.
