Ask Dr. Gott 5/24

DEAR DR. GOTT: I suffer from restless-legs syndrome and have tried the soap-under-the-sheet treatment without experiencing relief. I am now using Excedrin during the day and 20 milligrams OxyContin at night, when the pain in my legs gets so bad I can't get rid of it. I even get up and take hot baths or ride my bicycle to get some relief. This does help a little but not for long.

Dear Abby 5/24

DEAR ABBY: Like "Fine, Thank You in Gastonia, N.C.," I, too, was annoyed when people greeted me with the mindless, "How are you?" "How ya doin'?" etc., which required me to respond to someone who clearly had no interest in a real response. (I understand their feigned interest is more automatic than rude.)

Bridge 5/24

Most of the time when you are the declarer in a trump contract, you will have more trumps than the dummy. Then, when you count your losers at trick one, it is relatively simple.
