To answer ChessboardMath11 Quiz of 3.September.2009 one by one a day, #(2) asking about the Nattering Nabobs of Negativity, the answer is here, that Betza has N.N. of N. as a Chess Different Armies fleet. I will back-cite the answers later at ChessboardMath11 once they are all linked for answers. Now the phrase Nattering Nabobs of Negativity was used in 1970s by a certain USA Vice President, who got it from William Safire, who just died this week. The Vice President goes unspeakable and nameless for his corruption. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_fools
