Quite proud of my friends Clay and Mark, with whom I go back a long way. Well done, men.
The Best Bridge Writer Poll
Out of sight, out of mind, I guess. Alfred Sheinwold (1912-1997) was a monumental figure in the history of bridge and bridge journalism. Everyone has personal tastes, but to suggest that Freddy has no place on a list of great writers is at best ungenerous and uninformed. I need not ...
The Best Bridge Writer
Paul, Frederick B. Turner was most certainly his own person. We used to correspond. Many of his articles in TBW were extraordinary. They themselves were recalled with affection in an article by John Swanson a few years ago. My colleague Alfred Sheinwold wrote under his own name and also ghosted ...
The Best Bridge Writer
Mr. Sher, I sincerely appreciate your kind words about my columns. I have always been a David Bird fan. When he began to write almost 40 years ago, I was working at the ACBL Bulletin and edited his submissions. They were delightful and well received, but I suspect that nobody ...

Mr. Sher, Very well. (Sigh.) Responding as a writer myself, thus with an emphasis on the elegance and readability of their prose, I nominate in alphabetical order Kaplan, Mollo, Reese, Sheinwold and Alan Truscott.

Play Records, Another Argument for E-Bridge (not necessarily online bridge)
Peg, Jim and Steve (up to now), thanks for responding. Your comments are consistently among the most temperate and articulate on this site. I was careful to write “some .... of these visions.” A scenario that you and I can favor or at least accept is relatively benign. I have seen ...
Play Records, Another Argument for E-Bridge (not necessarily online bridge)
Being as this is Christmas Day, I am moved to comment. Where in some of these utopian, technologically perfect visions of the future of “bridge” is the social interaction, the camaraderie and friendships made, the realization that the “opponents” have lives away from the table (or an iPad), not to ...
Bridge Magazine RIP?
Friends, My post above was specifically intended to comment on someone's assertion that newspaper bridge columns are disappearing, a topic I am in a position to address. It was not my intention to inflame the passions of the environmentally conscious or technologically focused. My friend Bobby Wolff often shares ...
