Why the uproar about Cell Phones? Are they really THE problem?
Unlucky Louie, one of the players who inhabits the imaginary bridge club in my syndicated column, has a daughter in college. In a course in 20th Century Literature, she read Orwell's "1984" as an assignment. Louie told me his daughter said she had no idea things were so bad ...
What is a Bloomer?
Allan, See "The Bluhmer" by Jim Foster in The Bridge World, December 1993 issue. Incidentally, the late Lou Bluhm was a magnificent player -- winner of several NABC titles -- and a bidding innovator. I had the pleasure of playing several events as his partner, and I never saw him make a ...

Time for a rethink
Upthread, someone asked -- and I suspect their question was not rhetorical -- "How many newspapers actually carry bridge columns anymore?" In the U.S. I am guessing that more than half of the dailies do so. The demand supports five different syndicated columns, including mine. I occasionally gain or lose a ...
Suspension bridge? Dear BridgeWinners ...
Karen, all the best to you. We go back a long way! F.S.
Suspension bridge? Dear BridgeWinners ...
