Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Just based on relevant life experience (not in bridge but in other arenas of life), I have a strong opinion that there should be efforts to correct the record -- whether by working within the system, creating a separate Wikipedia page, or by other means. I disagree that it's done ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Randy, John did not say that he thinks Mr. Zimmerman knew in advance that he was hiring cheaters. John wrote that it has been determined that 40% of the people he hired were cheaters. And, John has stated that it shows a lack of sportsmanship to refuse to address the ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy

Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Jan Kamras has just commented (see above) that he shares our dismay, and may comment more fully in a few days. He is the head of the European Bridge League, I believe.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
It seems that we are moving closer and closer to a point where the choices are four (at least four -- others can probably think of more). Figure out a way to unwind bridge from the Olympics movement and thus the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Also figure out a way ...

That's strange that you were prevented from attending on those grounds.
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
