World Bridge Day
Aunt Kathleen may be deserving, but perhaps there are other dates that might work equally well. Maybe Harold Vanderbilt's birthday? Eli Culbertson's? Johnny Crawford?

The Best Bridge Writer
Begging your pardon, I don't quite recall any of Reese's comments on defensive carding saying something like "Boris has finger-signalled that he has four hearts, so I know that a shift to that suit (or away from that suit, if you prefer) is warranted." As for the Fantunes ...
