Nic, I'm curious as to why you used Google rather than a meta-search engine that supposedly hides the user's identity.
Did anyone who reads BW ever play against Buster Keaton -- or know someone who did?
The author's faculty webpage (https://english.wustl.edu/people/edward-mcpherson) includes a link to an interview on the Leonard Lopate show (https://www.wnyc.org/story/54200-the-backwash-squeeze/).

I can see it now... Don Adams: Would you believe I made a grand slam last week missing four aces? Listener: I find that very difficult to believe. Don Adams: Would you believe three aces. Listener: (shakes head "no") Don Adams: How about a one-eyed jack?

If in writing "lazy," you meant to suggest that the task could be accomplished easily, I'm sure many of us would like to hear how.
Graded Suit-Preference
I see it's been done.

"So it appears that the WBF can overrule the decision of its own anti-doping Tribunal." Even worse, the WBF seems to have disregarded its own regulations.
