about me

I am a retired teacher.  By night, (bridge) blogger, writer, editor, director, occasional teacher and social player. 

I wrote Collateral Damage, the sordid story and cold case of a stolen National title. You can see it and other essays here;

I and a few others fail to grasp why the ACBL cannot hear and appeal that was filed in 1979 at the event in question. By that abdication, they have conspired to deny the title to the rightful winners and thereby endorsed self-confessed and convicted cheaters. 

Have had the joy of discussing the integrity of our game with many of our elite. I thank them for their encouragement and support. 

I have a fabulous son with the greatest name in Negro League history. You can figure that out. 

I reside in suburban Toronto, happy in love and life. New spouse, two new sons, alas, no card players, yet.

Anyone is invited to contact me at dancesavecwords@gmail.com. 

Love the MSC. Feel TBW & our game can always use more humour. 

Love Kantar, Philip and Robert King, Mollo, the Abbot and Right Through the Pack. 

Miss Fred.

Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
"The panel was also wrong, in my opinion, to rule that this not an Appeal without Merit." (M.R.) What is the threshold to determine is an appeal is frivolous or "without merit"? Certainly everyone filing an appeal feels justified in asking for a review. How do we separate the ...

Always amenable to a refreshing beverage. Merci. C
There's a beer in your future
That Canadian beer is so tempting, can't see the froth for the foam. C
What's the position, post-Boye Revelations?
"Not a very impressive feat." Perhaps that says it all. Indifference. Denial. Obfuscate. Hoping Boye et. al. will fade away. Not this time. C
SiVY: A Story of Youth Bridge Success - Part 1
It's refreshing to read a positive story where we can all celebrate the efforts of a few. TY for sharing the stories of the unsung. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXgkuM2NhYI C
My Online NABC - Introduction and Day 1
Loved your play by play, especially the justification (er, explanation) for off-beat, successful actions. WD. C
Surely not another missed game with 10 trumps
Growing as we speak.... C
San Francisco BoD meeting
Apparently it is felt by management that the gain from legal insularity is greater than the benefit of better integration. (DM/above) I would rephrase. Apparently it is felt by management that the gain from legal abdication is greater than the fiduciary duty we owe to our members. C
Gargoyle Chronicles - Event 3, Match 6, Board 4
No ace, no king, partner knows I am short in spades. Just don't think it is enough. Don't feel as strongly as JD, conservative in bidding, liberal in life. I feel a raise here shows more than this paltry collection. C
