For those of you who haven't noticed, Garry Kasparov has been sent to jail by the Russian government. Garry Kasparov is a chess champion turned political activist who has been opposing Putin's party and demanding democratic reforms. He was arrested for protesting for fair elections. The Soviet Uni . . . I mean Russia decided to arrest Kasparov for basically not having a permit to protest. Wow. Putin seems determined to prove the Simpsons right.
