New home for Bobby?

Bobby Fischer has been granted residency in Iceland. Since he's still in Japan without a valid passport, it's to be seen if he'll ever make it there. I've always found Fischer a completely unlikeable personality. Still, I have to confess a love of his chess. I recently went through one of his old games against Spassky, and couldn't help admiring the novelty and daring of his ideas.
