Open San Diego Discussion Thread Just change the number before .pdf. 2 is Saturday Nov 25
2d response to opening strong artificial 2C

Henry G. Francis
Henry was one of the funniest and smartest men I have ever known. Michael is on his way to see Dorthy right now. Great loss to the Bridge world and the print media. Nothing like an old school newsman. I think I worked for the NABC Daily Bulletin for at ...
