Back in the Pleistocene, at military school in the South, some of my dorm-mates and I started a mimeographed – remember mimeographs? – broadside called the Trusty Tribunal. We were pamphleteers in the 18th-century sense, with approximately the same tech, but at a military school -- M.A.S.H, basically, minus the operating rooms and the grownups.
