Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sleeping on the couch, again
I voted for "Dave should sleep on the couch" (among other positive answers) on the general principle which is demonstrated by this quip: If a man is in the forest and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong? (By the way, congrats on cashing your ...
