Intense Politics in Russia...

If any of you watched Real Time with Bill Maher a few nights ago you would have seen Гарри Кимович Каспаров (Garry Kimovich Kasparov), former world chess champion and author of the book How Life Imitates Chess. He gave Bill a very interesting interview and shocked the panel with his intelligence. Garry is a candidate for the Russian presidential race of 2008. He is against Putin and is a member of the political group The Other Russia. His views are extremely interesting and thought provoking. This guy is a genius. However the one thing that shocked me most was the intensity of his political involvement in Russia. Garry has bodyguards at all times and must be wary of eating and drinking things offered by strangers for fear of being poisoned!
