What else can we say about the departed George H.W. Bush, other than that he wasn't the worst president in our lifetimes but otherwise left little for libertarians to cheer about aside from not freaking out while communism collapsed? On the latest editors' roundtable edition of the Reason Podcast, Katherine Mangu-Ward and Peter Suderman add their contributions to the pool already populated by co-podcasters Nick Gillespie and me. Hint: involves supermarket scanners.
Also discussed: Last week's huge volume of news on all things Mueller/Trump/Russia, the multi-administration follies of Government Motors, the technologic inadequacies of certain podcast participants, and of course the Reason Webathon (Donate right the hell now!).
