Kasparov-Anand at the World Trade Center

On September 11, 1995, the Kasparov-Anand World Championship match began.  The venue was the Observation Deck of the South Tower of the World Trade Center.  More photos from that day (and from another day six years later, one of the saddest of our lives) here.

This day of remembrance is for the victims and the heroes of FDNY, NYPD, and Flight 93.  After today, let's also remember good things like the games from one of the greatest World Championship matches.

Today's movie recommendation: James Marsh's Man on Wire.
