The madness of Bobby Fischer had registered a few years ago when someone told me they had a tape of him on Manila Sports Radio DZSR  playing USA soul and R&B music and spouting forth anti-semetic and conspiracy rants.  This Atlantic Monthly 2002 article spelt it out in gory detail and now local blogger Barista has updated the story with his arrest in Japan.  Barista manages to nicely weave the story in with that of  Charles Jenkins, the 64 year old US Army deserter who lived in North Korea.
