Haste can be an enemy to thought. The sort of thing that would make we wonder whether I have fallen for a practical joke is:Gerard Killoran wrote:An obituary of John Rety in The Guardian.

Unfortunately they write, 'he found time to indulge his passion for chess and become a grandmaster.' I hope the rest of the article is more accurate.
As I recall Janos is Hungarian for John, thus the Guardian's obituary writer seems to have written that John Reti was born Reti John. Make of that what you will.Born Reti Janos in Budapest
While I'm motivated, the FT tribute, previously mentioned by me, can be found on http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/e3f92442-27e0 ... abdc0.html ;a quick read suggests it is identical to what I read in the paper last week.
