From Netscape News: Kasparov Hit Over Head With Chessboard

Most surreal story of the year, so far...

Garry Kasparov, the world's former No. 1 chess player . . . said he had been hit over the head with a chessboard in a politically motivated attack . . .

[Kasparov] was not injured Friday when he was hit with the chessboard after signing it for a young man at an event in Moscow . . .

The unidentified attacker-- who did not reveal his political allegiance-- tried to hit Kasparov again but was hauled away by security guards.

Who gets a chessboard autographed? Get your virginity signed, instead; it'll probably last longer.
