about me

Live in Washington, D.C. area; degree in math, retired from U.S Government.

Played a lot in the sixties/seventies; took 35 years off; came back to play in clubs or occasional regional about 2011. 

According to Newsweek I'm a typical ACBL member:  somebody's grandmother with an aol email address. 

Interested in the discussions about cheating detection and investigation/adjudication processes.

Regardless of what your profit says about you, you sound charming!
Director, please!
Way to go, John! This situation should be on the Club Director's test (I assume there is such a thing) and anyone who doesn't pick the option of teaching them Michaels after the game should fail.
Non-comparable call question.
Does the ACBL need more Washrooms at NABCs OR should players be kicked out of tournaments with cause?
Hi, Larry, Might be close to 50%. Hint: if you poll this (!) make sure you can separate the responses by gender. Just sayin'.
