Major Article in Toronto Star
There are a half dozen photos in the article, and the two that show smoking are in black-and-white and are obviously old. I don't think that makes it look like lots of smoking happens today.
Make Them Pay
Kit seems to be the opposite of King Arthur in [i]Monty Python and the Holy Grail[/i]. "One...two...three!" "Five, sire!" "Five!"
Experimenting with weak NT
What do you do after 1N-(X)-P-(2any)? It seems like fourth hand nearly always pulls, and the difficulty of competing sensibly when responder could have any strength is why I demand a business XX.
What is a good grand slam?
Every once in a while, you can go for it based on general strength. I remember a hand that was something like AKx AKQJx KQx xx opposite Qxx xx Axx AKQxx, and we had an auction along these lines: 1 (strong or natural) - 2 (natural, 10+) 2 ...

Extra Trick
Well, I put it up as a poll and double seems to be a clear winner.
Extra Trick
The choice is among bidding on a terrible suit, doubling and very likely getting to a horrible 5 contract, and passing with shape and values. I think that bidding spades seems like the least of evils.
Extra Trick
If declarer is 1=8=3=1 then partner is 5=1=2=5 and might have chosen to bid 4 rather than doubling.
