My friend, Ken Eichenbaum, has just released a new ebook through Master Point Press, called "Bridge without a Partner." The book is hysterical, and I recommend it to anyone with a (sick?) sense of humor.

The basic idea is that a bridge pro ("Friday") is hooked up with the client-no-one-wants ("Zelda") and agrees to take on the challenge. The level of insanity (genius?) that Zelda reaches is astonishing, and yet Friday eventually figures out how to cater to her odd ideas about the game and even to improve her game, as best could be possible. The end result is a series of insane (but often landed) contracts, opponents with exploding heads, director-initiated inquisitions, and the like. "The System" is a thing of beauty.

The scary thing is that which only a few know -- stories this good are beyond Eichenbaum's ability to make up. Truth is stranger than fiction.
"Gibberish in, gibberish out. A trial judge, three sets of lawyers, and now three appellate judges cannot agree on what this law means. And we ask police officers, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and citizens to enforce or abide by it? The legislature continues to write unreadable statutes. Gibberish should not be enforced as law."

-P.J. Painter.
