Sometimes our editorial department
gets a little self-conscious about bringing up The Bad War. No, not the one that’s going on now, apparently all over the place. (Seriously—Niger? Oh, well, at least it was a tactical victory.)

No, we refer to the one which ended 46 years ago today. The one whose combatants, truck drivers, cooks and clerk typists we celebrate today—as we’re sure everyone is well aware.

Much as we would like to get with the program and pretend like everyone else that it never happened, it keeps erupting in the oddest places.

Can you blame us? Until everyone got distracted by Attorney General Barr’s concise assurance that the nation’s most prominent draft dodger is in no legal jeopardy, we were all transfixed by the spectacle of President Bone Spur arguing with a dead man.

Other items touched upon include the Mueller report, the list of speakers at UNH’s three commencements, and an argument explaining why New Hampshire should rename the Governor’s Mansion for Senator Thomas J. McIntyre. Plus, of course, about a gross of carefully curated items which were once news, and are still worthy of recall.
