Cook County inmates competed in an online chess challenge against prisoners in Russia this week. Predictably, the Russians dominated. The U.S. felons did capture a respectable five out of nineteen matches, however. U.S.A.!!! According to the Sun-Times, the contest was suggested by former world champion Anatoly Karpov.

Check out Brendan’s latest hip hop review for Illinois entertainer here. ATLiens landed at Park West!
