    From the Chicago Tribune

    Chess Champion Arrested
    Fischer On Run For 12 Years

    July 17, 2004
    Chicago Tribune

    In exile and on the run from U.S. arrest for the past 12 years, chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer was taken into custody before boarding a flight to the Philippines from Narita airport outside Tokyo this week.

    Though Japanese immigration officials made the arrest, it came at the urging of U.S. Immigration and Customs enforcement. Fischer, 61, is now fighting extradition to the United States to face a charge that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.more-source...

    Hitler, too, I suppose.
    Let us not equate intelligence with greatness.

    "Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited while imagination embraces the entire world."
    - Albert Einstein

    "Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance."
    - Confucious
