Editor: Why am I continuing to worry about a recent "Soundoff" opinion that "Symphonies, along with ballet and opera, are cultural baggage"? I suppose my main worry about such a needless, pointless condemnation of the arts is that it might be symptomatic and contagious.

A one-club opening is not Stayman, which does ask for a major. True, after a one-club opening, the responder will show a major if that is the correct bid with his hand. But the opener has not promised any length in the majors - his ...
DEAR DR. GOTT: I am writing in response to the person who had a frustrating itch deep inside the ear. Since I am very familiar with ear problems, I wanted to share my experience. I have had many appointments, first with my personal physician and then with three different ENT specialists over a period of about seven years.
