District 7 Columbia/Atlanta Regionals are A GO!
My first thought: Natural selection at work. My second thought: Sadly, for most attendees, it would be a few decades too late.
Youngest Life Master
Congratulations! Quite the set of circumstances to overcome to get in those last few wins, and very well deserved.
Mea Culpa
I found myself in a similar position a few weeks back, but was ultimately convinced (and swung sharply in the opposite direction of believing in government-ordered restrictions) by some of the articles shared on early posts. I'm glad that you've reconsidered, and I would expect nothing less from ...
It Happened One Day
I don't recall the exact incident since it was a couple years back, but when I played them in the Spingold with Christian Jolly + Kevin Rosenberg + Ben Kristensen, it was all fun and games until they realized they might lose. Then it got serious and hostile quickly. In the ...
A Call for Unity
Everything is political. I don't want my friends, family, or the bridge community to die or suffer serious harm from this virus (regardless of their political affiliation!). While I have relatively little power to influence that, our US elected officials and authorities can. They have the chance to reduce ...
US travel ban on mainland Europe

This overloads the healthcare system and imposes social costs beyond the individual who is sick... Even if they don't spread it to anyone else ...
Open Letter to the ACBL on Covid-19
Well said, Josh, and I couldn't agree more. Willfully allowing an event to continue with an at-risk population, participants from around the world, and clear transmission vectors through cards is not just ill-advised, it is malpractice. This is not about fear or panic, nor is it about individual liberty ...
NABC Coronavirus Precautions
I nearly died from swine flu at the San Diego nationals in 2009. Regardless of containment, I will allow this picture to explain why even if it is inevitable, it is a boon to public health to "flatten the curve" and prevent truly exponential spread: ...
