DUs own BoloBoffin mentioned in The Nation!
My fellow Tennessean BoloBoffin deserves a double round of applause - for his excellent research into Bush's Incredible Disappearing Service Record, and for being used as a source in The Nation.
:toast:

Bush's Military Past
by Ian Williams

<snip>
In fact, even when the allegedly destroyed microfilm could not be found, the information on it was not really missing at all. Joseph Nobles, who blogs as Bolo Boffin, discovered each quarter's record also replicated the three previous quarters. By comparing adjacent records, Noble deduced that while 1st Lt. Bush claimed a few non-active duty days in Alabama, on one of which we know he was at the dentist, he returned to Texas with zero active duty days in the previous year. The rediscovered data confirmed what Nobles had deduced, and Bush's failure to show up for active duty. He was then booked for almost full-time duty for three months, presumably in an attempt to clear the books before giving him early discharge for Harvard Business School (his second choice, since the University of Texas Law School turned him down).

Lucky me, in the right place at the right time.

As it turns out, Bush's jumpstart in 1973 didn't make up for the time he'd missed in 1972. Paul Lukisiak has broken down the payroll records in a way I couldn't have done.

An easier version to read is over at Political Animal:

After you read that article, you should check out the rest of his work. He's got it going on.

10. Drum's analysis is indeed easier to digest
Though it is worth reading Lukasiak's source material.
