    The jury system is one of the glories of American law, giving ordinary people responsibility over many serious matters between the government and its citizens. Thursday’s acquittal of seven people who occupied a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon could be taken as a vindication of that institution. Or it could be taken as proof that even the noblest human inventions are subject to human fallibility.

The driver can’t say because he was one of the 13 people killed when the bus plowed into the back of a big rig truck.

Republicans hold just two of New England’s 21 congressional seats, and two of 12 Senate seats, those of Maine’s Susan Collins and New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte.
