Bridge 8/2

Most marquee bridge players write at least one book. This usually contains famous deals involving this player. But a new book, written over a span of 15 years by Bobby Wolff, "The Lone Wolff" (Master Point Press), bucks this trend. It contains only five deals in which Wolff participated. Instead, Wolff gives an insider look at bridge organizers and organizations. He also spends a lot of time denigrating cheating and wishing that the powers could do even more to stamp it out. The book is not without flaws, but makes interesting reading.

Ask Dr. Gott 8/2

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 76-year-old man in relatively good health. Would you please clarify the value (or lack thereof) of tea? Because of a previous belief that all tea, especially green tea, was beneficial, I began drinking all types of it instead of coffee. I subsequently read that tea inhibits the absorption of iron. This was the case with me. When I went to donate blood, my iron count was too low to donate. I stopped drinking tea and took iron pills for a while. My blood count returned to normal.
