when people post articles on chess.com why don't they say their opinions on it?

I opine that Fischer was a great man.  His antisemitism never bothered me. Then again, I'm not a Zionist.

 If only he had chosen to go to hospital earlier, he could still be alive today. A sad and premature end for such a great player.

He made great decisions at the board - Not so great decisions away from the board.

For some reason he lived for 64 years. The same number of squares on a chessboard.

Maybe he shot himself since he wanted to live that long
