Here is the daily Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle for May 14: 20130514pzdxl-a.pdf
When the opening bid is one no-trump and responder bids two clubs, it asks opener to show a four-card major. If opener has two of them, he rebids two hearts. Then, what does the responder do when he has four spades and fewer than four hearts?
If he has game-invitational strength, it depends upon system. If one no-trump - two no-trump is natural, showing about nine points and inviting game, then responder continues with two no-trump. Since he used Stayman, he must have a four-card major, and since he has not raised hearts, he must hold four spades. But if one no-trump - two no-trump is not natural, perhaps a transfer to diamonds, responder rebids two spades.
DEAR DOCTOR K:
I have mild back pain. I sit at a desk all day and tend to slouch. My mother says that sitting up straight may help. Is she right?
Adapted from a recent online discussion.
My husband has had a close group of friends since his early 20s, and they communicate daily through group texts and emails. When we first started dating, I found out some of the guys send naked pictures of girls to each other or pictures of girls they were sleeping with. I found this so tacky.
Fast-forward five years and I just found out they still do this. I think this is very juvenile behavior -- they're all in their mid-30s now and half are married -- and the feminist in me just wants to scream. I've made it clear to my husband that it bothers me, but he says he can't control what they send.
I know that's true, but I'm disappointed -- both with the guys for being so juvenile and with my husband for being so close to such juvenile guys. Sometimes I feel society gives a free pass to poor/immature behavior ("Oh, guys will be guys").
I don't have a question here other than, what do you think?
