Where's the Fan? Cuz the Shit's Gonna Fly!

This is the 5th paragraph is today's BTF story:

One document, a "memo to file" dated May 1972 , refers to a conversation between Colonel Killian and Lieutenant Bush when they "discussed options of how Bush can get out of coming to drill from now through November," because the lieutenant "may not have time."

This document is coming under heavy internet fire as a possible forgery. The key point being the superscript following "111". Apparently, this is a modern convention of word processing which would not have been available in the early 70s.

If so, my weekend NYT subscription is over. (The Sunday Crossword has been solved regulary for a while now.)
