    If as stated the burial is illegal than maybe we can redo properly. I will donate a few hundred right now.

    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    If my stingy relos don't give me a chess tombstone I hereby grant chess players on CC the permission to redo. Will probably be in Mullumbimby cemetery Independent section, beginning of row - booked twenty years ago.

    Hey macho, there's no reason for the Cross to be moved, what about Fischer though? was he put back inside after DNA testing exhumation?

    Actually, yes he was.

    That's according to a Chessbase16 report on 20/08/2010

    Details of Fischer's exhumation revealed

    "I will give you a report but stress that we keep all details confidential as we have strict orders from the authorities not to reveal any such detailed information to the media,"
    wrote Thordur Bogason, the Icelandic lawyer representing Jinky and Marilyn Young in the Fischer paternity suite.

    Yeah right! Their Philippine lawyer Samuel Estimo did pass it on – to us and the New York Times.

    The implication being that Bobby didn't always get his kicks above the waistline, Sunshine.

    Fancy Marcos offering $5m for prize money and Bobby refused. A Sydney suburban house cost about $11k then.
