Kasparov: I have no life

If he's not careful, the guy could very well make that statement a physical reality. Well, the high powers forbid and all that. Speaking to Jordan Timm, Kasparov once again gives another of his many interviews covering his anti-Putin activities, his vision of a new Russia and, of course, takes time to briefly talk about his latest book.

I have no life. It’s terrible, it affects my family. Daria [Kasparov’s wife] is from St. Petersburg and if she goes there for a few days, I have to send bodyguards.
