BOBBY, WE HARDLY KNEW YE: The reclusive American chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer has broken years of silence to support the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In an interview on the evening of September 11 with Radio Bombo -- an obscure radio station in the Philippines -- Mr. Fischer said:

"This is all wonderful news... I applaud the act. The US and Israel have been slaughtering the Palestinians for years. Now it is coming back at the US. ... I was happy and could not believe what was happening... This just shows, what goes around comes around, even to the US ... It is time to finish off the US once and for all."

What more is there to say? (How about: Hey, Bobby -- why don't you hop a plane to New York and tell Katie Couric and the rest of America what you really think!)

Fischer was obviously a nut-job from the get-go -- but the problem is, there are too many others out there like him to just shrug and and write them all off as brilliant nut-jobs. The kind of mind that can simultaneous play out chess games nine moves ahead and blame the international Jewish conspiracy for the world's ills is exactly the same kind of mind that could engineer a terrorist attack of unprecedented scope and complexity -- and gladly do so, given sufficient manpower and finanical support.

(Hey, Drudge -- you sleeping on the job tonight? I picked up this story from -- of all sources -- Art Bell!)
