Not Putin's Pawn

Garry Kasparov talks to The Independent:

Does chess – a cerebral, individualistic pursuit if ever there was one – really help solve real problems? Yes, says Kasparov: "I talk about strategy, tactics, achieving your potential, decoding the complexity of life, so it's mainly about the big picture. I feel I have enough experience to pull these things together."

From Garry Kasparov: The master who won't be Putin's pawn.

Why can't this guy just get off his political butt for a while and come to Dresden? He'll be more relaxed, I think.

You can't blame Kasparov for being concerned about the political situation in Russia - it appears to be pretty bad.

But instead of coming to Dresden, he should come to Australia!
