You may or may not know it, but I like to play bridge. If you didn’t know it before it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Anyway, I have just learned that when Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was recently robbed at machete point in his Nevis vacation home he was playing bridge.
This detail has now inspired a short article in Newsweek about all of the rich and famous people who play bridge.
The article is so intent on making bridge sound like a game for celebrities that it fails to point out that it’s great mental exercise. Research has also shown that it’s good for your immune system. Don’t ask me how or why.
In truth, the game seems to be have more appeal to those who are older—and, dare I say, wiser—but still it’s nice to see a formerly mainstream publication marketing bridge.
