Retired Justice John Paul Stevens, Associate Justice, SCOTUS
In 1984, prior to the Summer Nationals in Washington, Justice Stevens played in a Congress-Parliament match that I helped cover for the Bulletin. The deals and play had been recorded, but the account of one deal I wanted to use was incomplete. I called the Supreme Court, got a law ...
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
I have never had the pleasure of meeting Fred Gitelman, but I am well aware of the extraordinary impact he and those who supported him have made on the game. His vision and resolve have changed the face of bridge, and for the better. You can take your retirement, Fred ...
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
Mr. Clayton, I can’t speak for my colleagues, but I routinely report some deals from every NABC. A year or two ago I ran an entire week of columns touting the many rewards of playing duplicate bridge and the benefits of ACBL membership. I have also made occasional references ...

Mystery of Barry Crane
I must acknowledge that Ron Garber first cited S.J. Simon’s words in an excellent article about Barry Crane in the January 1975 issue of The Bridge World. Garber closed by writing that “Barry Crane is a Natural.” I am sure the Garber piece was familiar to me when ...
Mystery of Barry Crane
The sentiment comes from one of a series of articles I wrote in 1985 for the ACBL Bulletin (as its co-editor) about Crane’s achievements and persona. In discussing his unique style of play, I offered this: “S.J. Simon wrote that there are two kinds of bridge players, the ...
Wall Street Journal
Not so many years ago, one of AARP’s magazines had a feature article on bridge. They interviewed a couple of players who had won major ACBL Seniors events. At that time, I contacted AARP with a proposal and after some difficulty I corresponded with a senior editor. She was ...
Wall Street Journal
Indeed I could try, but the outcome might parallel the AFDA’s effort to market glass caskets: Remains to be seen.
