General message board for all to enjoy! I found a note to Howard Greenspan (Norwalk, CT) taped to this board. Turns out that it was from an old teacher of his who knew she'd once had a student who was interested in top SCRABBLE® play. She is now out here in California, looked him up on the NSA web site and saw that he was playing here and came her and took him to lunch one day!
