An odd similarity


General Culture

When I first saw the disguise picked by Radovan Karadzic (left) to hide from the International War Crimes Tribunal, I was struck to see how similar his look was to former chess champion Robert “Bobby” Fisher’s (who had also been on the run from authorities, albeit for different reasons). Both one of the worst war criminals of our times and a chess champion turned raving lunatic decided to use the deranged Santa Claus look - and it’s quite interesting to see how people in both cases were extremely surprised when they finally got their glimpse of their man. Actually, one could probably Saddam Hussein’s disguise to the list.
