"Lars, do you spend your whole day looking for negative things to ascribe to USA? :) "Why do you waste your time with that?" Good question. If it's taking him a whole day, his search method leaves something to be desired.
Howard Cohen R.I.P.
Tom's story reminds me of an exchange from the film [u]The Survivors[/u], that went something like this: Instructor at outdoor survivalist course: "There's a trespasser on the property. We have to go find and kill him." Student: "Do we get charged more for that?"

Hi Mats, My understanding is that for an article to be "featured," it needs to be submitted as a "draft" to Bridge Winners staff, who then edit and publish it. But you could try contacting support@bridgewinners.com to see whether an exception might be made here. Better might be ...
