Mig reports on Garry Kasparov's visit to Cambridge and makes mention of a few local chess "celebrities" he met there:
People showed up with everything from battered old chessboards to Russian copies of My Great Predecessors to dusty copies of Garry's original English game collection The Test of Time (This means you, Goldowsky!)....

Good to see former colleague Rob Huntington, who used to [cover] chess for AP. Good to meet Mark Donlan of Chess Horizons as well. Natasha Christiansen came by and kindly suggested Garry come back to her and Larry's house for some tea to soothe his sore throat. (It was 10pm when we finally got out of there and we ... just went back to the hotel and crashed.)
