OT: Donz New Outfit



Now we know what Don did this weekend...

Lennon's white 'Abbey Road' suit sells for $46,000
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) -- The white two-piece suit John Lennon wore on the
cover of the Beatles' "Abbey Road" album has been sold at auction in
Connecticut for $46,000.

The suit and other Beatles memorabilia were sold Saturday at the Braswell
Galleries' annual New Year's Day auction to an online bidder who wished to
remain anonymous.

Owner Kathy Braswell tells the Connecticut Post the holiday auction is their
biggest event of the year.

The suit was custom made for Lennon by French designer Ted Lapidus.

Hank Gioiella of Darien paid $5,500 for a rusted green 1972 Chrysler station
wagon Lennon and Yoko Ono owned.

    ... possible with good diamonds and not great clubs. ... 2H and 2S are both natural, forcing, of ambiguous strength, showing 5+ hearts, and denying a game-forcing hand with a concentration of honors in the suit bid. ... So the choice is between 2H and 2S, With the majors reversed, the sequence pass:1D,1S:2C,2H would be automatic, but 2S is a responder's reverse in form, so no matter what you agree that it shows, it tends to force the auction a level higher. ... On this particular hand I am willing to stress the strong hearts and let the empty spade suit go unbid: that decision is non-systemic in KS and may well be an error. ...
