Unexpected as the Spanish Inquisition

One never knows what may turn up in Post Office Box 756. Last week we received an unanticipated copy of the July issue of New Hampshire Magazine. Under the heading, “Best of N.H. 2018 Arts & Culture,” we found this:

Fortnightly Rant: In this age of 24/7/365 ranting on cable TV and social media, it’s amazing how a more measured and timely rant can sound a lot like common sense. That’s not to make a value judgment about the politics of [the] freely distributed New Hampshire Gazette, just about [the editor’s] temperament. [His] front-page editorials may drive conservatives to crank up Fox News, but his words are carefully chosen and arranged with insight and a sense of humor. OK, dark humor—still, the view of the world from the Portsmouth offices of the ‘Nation’s Oldest Newspaper’ is always enlightening and entertaining, even when exasperating.”

Our thanks to Editor Rick Broussard: your assessment of the alleged editor’s temperament gave our Business (Such as it Is) Manager a good laugh.
