Thirty years of editing and creating reference works on a wide range of topics prepared Robert McHenry to offer a unique take on current events, literature, and even - yes - the truth. "Needless to Say" gathers together the best of his ideas and writing. The articles in this anthology were originally published in "The American", the "Britannica Blog", "TCS Online", "Editor's Crotchet", the "Fortnightly Review", "NRC Handelsblad", the "Chronicle of Higher Education", and elsewhere online and on paper. For a world drowning in news, "Fake News," real fake news, and utter hogwash, "Needless to Say" is a welcome relief. Also, some of the pieces are pretty funny.
