Excerpt from Rambles With the Switcher: An Opening in the Game of Checkers

There are three classes of checker players: the knownothings, the knowalls, and the doubters. Another way to name these classes is to call them novices, cracker barrel champions, and experts.

The reason for believing that experts may be not improperly called doubters is that they are accustomed to finding old proof upset by new proof. They are eternally searching for holes in proof.

There is, of course, some absolute finality in every position of the pieces the board can show; but the secrets of the mystic squares are guarded by seductive forms of delusion and hallucination. Perhaps it is on this account that the obnoxious pronoun, I, is commonly used in checker diction not as a sign of self-sufficiency but of humbleness.
