I'm so sorry but have always subscribed to the John Lennon theory that there is nothing to fear about death, it's just like getting out of one car and into another.

As bridge players we are blessed with above average memories and I'm sure Winstomm has the best. And I know it doesn't feel like it.

Andrew Sarris, Village Voice film critic.

Quote

Courtly, incisive and acerbic in equal measure, Mr. Sarris came of critical age in the 1960s as the first great wave of foreign films washed ashore in the United States. From his perch at The Village Voice, and later at The New York Observer, he wrote searchingly of that glorious deluge and the directors behind it — François Truffaut, Max Ophuls, Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni, Ingmar Bergman, Akira Kurosawa.

Film criticism had reached a heady pitch amid the cultural upheavals of that time, and Mr. Sarris’s temperament fit that age like a glove on a fencer’s hand.

“We were so gloriously contentious, everyone bitching at everyone,” Mr. Sarris recalled in a 2009 interview with The New York Times. “We all said some stupid things, but film seemed to matter so much.

If you lose all hope, you can always find it again -- Richard Ford in The Sportswriter

Condolences Winston. It's been a very sad time for you lately.

Bob was one of the first teachers I met on BBO and he was immensely helpful and supportive to me and many many others finding our way through the maze of duplicate bridge. He was always ready and willing to help anyone who was truly trying to learn. He is missed.

Thanks for understanding. This has not been a pleasant couple of months.
