Not a bad article, though one sentence "...he was perfectly
normal, even pleasant to be with, unless one of his bugaboos was
brought up; only then did his ranting begin" struck me as a
tautology like "He was fine, except when he was not." Some testimony,
for example that of Fischer's companion Petra Stadler Dautov in "Bobby
Fischer Wie er wirklich ist" (1995) has indicated that in his later
years Fischer would rant without a "bugaboo" being brought up.
