An Offer That Cannot Be Refused

The Announcement

in 1891, with Kansas City pacified by the large Union force now occupying it, Lt. Colonel Mark Wainwright has become free to devise a plan to take Topeka. He has used the telegraph extensively, coordinating movements between the Union soldiers surrounding Kansas, as well as requesting addition troops from Washington. He now comes to General Theodore Monteith with a plan for the final attack on the rebel state. “If this doesn't do it, sir,” he tells the general, “nothing will.” Monteith approves the plan, thanking Wainwright for his tremendous efforts in this war. “I imagine there'll be some medals for you after this is all said and done, Mark.” Wainwright doesn't seem too enthused by the prospect, and Monteith asks him why. “I've soured a bit on the whole idea of honor and glory, sir. Most of me now just wants revenge, and an end to all of this.” Monteith says, “I understand, Mark. Hopefully, this plan will bring you that which you want, as well as that which you don't need.”

in 1999, Walton Ray Thermopolous, a London industrialist who is high among the Illuminati, is granted an audience with Queen Gwen of Britain. She dismisses all her aides before speaking with him, “so that we may be as frank as necessary.” Once alone, she presents him with what she says is an easy choice - “Support me, Walton, and the entire Illuminati is ours. I've crushed most of them already, but you I want on my side. Your organization will be useful to me.” Thermopolous is worried about crossing his masters, and says so. Queen Gwen derides his fear of the ancient organization. “They are nothing, now. I drive them before me like cattle to the slaughter. I offer you the chance to be one of the drivers, rather than the cattle.” The frightened businessman reluctantly accepts the queen's offer, and severs his ties with his old masters to throw his support behind her.

In 2003, US President John McKay told Carl Griffin there was Power in the West. Something came into the World with a roar and was growing like a cancer. Griffin was authorised by McKay to end the Magic Time.

In 1955 in Richmond Virginia, the New Orleans R&B artist Chris Kenner was found guilty as charged under new Confederate anti-obscenity laws. Most of the lyrics of Land of a Thousands Dances were subject to non-sordid interpretation, 'Chicken in the pot' being an example cited by the defence. However 'Over on your back, I like it like that' was too bawdy and unmasked the unmistakeable sexual undertones of the song.Chris Kenner

In 1944 in London England, General Dwight David Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force released the following statement to the World Press in the aftermath of Disaster Day:

'Our landings have failed and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based on the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that bravery could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt it is mine alone.'
