HE HAD A BEAUTIFUL MIND. At InstaPundit's recommendation, I skimmed through the Kitchen Cabinet coverage of the Yale Blogging Conference, and en passant discovered reference to a lengthy Atlantic Monthly report on the descent into madness of Grandmaster Bobby Fischer. A pity, his My 60 Memorable Games will reward careful study, and the way Fischer opened a can of whup-ass on the Classic Sicilian Dragon is particularly lurid: "I'd won dozens of skittles games in analogous positions and had it down to a science: pry open the KR-file, sac, sac, ... mate!"
