Dear Abby 6/28

DEAR ABBY: "Pregnant and Paranoid in Calif." (May 6) is rightfully troubled by the unwanted touching of her abdomen by strangers. When they do it, she should back away and gently remind them that it makes her uncomfortable. What she needs to know is that touching a woman's belly is a deeply rooted instinctual behavior. It is as natural as pulling your hand away from a fire. - GAYLE FROM SCOTTS, MICH.

Bridge 6/28

We are studying eliminating losers in suit contracts. If you have a winner in one hand opposite a void in the other, you can cash that winner and discard a loser. Note, though, that it makes a difference which hand you take that discard from. If you throw a loser from your hand, your worries are over. But if you pitch from the board, you must then ruff on the board the loser that is still in your hand.

Ask Dr. Gott 6/27

DEAR DR. GOTT: My 70-year-old husband has always been a bit of an absent-minded professor, but he has gotten worse and is driving me and everybody else around him crazy. Every day he loses things that are important to him and blames everybody else. He leaves everything open and everything turned on. All day long he goes around complaining that he can't find his glasses. He has umpteen pairs scattered all over the house, but some are the "important" ones. He puts them down, can't remember where he left them and accuses me, the maid and his secretary ...
