A chess miracle

Here is a feel-good story from Down East courtesy of the Portsmouth Herald:

The game of chess has brought about a miracle in one mother’s child. A year ago, 13-year-old Jon Rousseau was uncomfortable in public. But on Saturday, Jon managed the first Turkey Quad chess tournament ...

Jon’s mother, Cynthia Rousseau, said that since her son began playing chess in the club, his social and intellectual capacities have shot from "zero to 100 percent."
