about me

I am a teacher of mentally handicapped children by day. By night, (bridge) blogger, writer, editor, director, occasional teacher and social player. 

\n

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

\n

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. 

\n

I reside in suburban Toronto, and am back at work (where I belong) after a year off with a fabulous month volunteering in Rwanda and happy in love, life, career. 

\n

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

\n

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

Best,

Seniors USA 1 Swing Hand
The state of the match is of course very relevant. Would be wonderful to be Zia, Boye, Chagas or the like, if just for one day. One of the best aspects of our game is we minnows can swim with the sharks. Compelling story, ty for sharing. If just for ...
Zeke Jabbour Winner of ACBL Blackwood Award
Congrats to Zeke and Sharon. Overdue. If Zeke is not in the HoF he should be. If you two are up to it, love to see you come August here in Toronto. Be well, C
Is this offensive?
There were a myriad of ways for the opponents to have reacted. Say nothing. Say, I would appreciate it if we (you) not discuss results at the table....or the like. It sounds to me like they were arrogant SOBs who were angry because they were losing to an inferior ...
-700 the hard way, ATB
North had various ways to show club support. 4NT should probably be natural as there is no agreed fit. So 5C is the worst call because it begat six, another mind-numbing call. Next time, maybe they can fill out (and discuss) the doubles part of CC and come to an ...

Buffett's & Gate's World View
Rich Girl? "What's their altruism however good got to do with BW?" (RG above) Quite a bit. BW is about more than hands, carding and results. It is becoming a forum for the advancement of the game. The BW global community discusses rules, protocols, ethics, integrity, cheating, sponsorship, WBF ...
My Bols Tip
I recall the discussion. Betty observed that her crimes were far more serious. That and playing with her husband must have been the impetus for R*A*T*S*. c

USA1 Round of 8, Day 1
Great job Oren. Enjoyed. Jacob was forthright and to the point. I admire how he absorbs a bad board and proceeds professionally. (Not that he has to suffer that fate more than a few occasions per Nationals.) I'm jealous. Reminded me (very favourably) of ..... Some profanity and the proverbial ...
