The Announcement

in 1891, in the somewhat battered Governor's mansion in Topeka, General Theodore Monteith and Lt. Colonel Mark Wainwright meet with three captured Farmers Council members to discuss how best to get their comrades to lay down arms. One of the councilors, Thaddeus Elridge, offers a truce – “Withdraw your Union soldiers, and we'll let 'em leave without a shot fired. Then, after next year, once we have a real president 'stead of that thief Harrison, we'll agree to rejoin the US as a state.” General Monteith and Colonel Wainwright seriously considered Elridge's offer for a moment, but then the general replied, “I'm afraid that I have to answer to that thief, sir. And, your actions have almost guaranteed his reelection, I believe. You cannot win. All you can do is draw out the bloodshed.” The three councilors regarded each other for a moment before Elridge spoke again. “If that's all we can do sir, then you can rest assured that 'Sockless' Simpson will make that drawing out as long as is humanly possible.” Wearily, Wainwright answered, “Yes, I believe you.”

in 1999, Dr. Archibald Mordred sends an email to Sir Lance du Lac, expressing concern about the queen's behavior. He doesn't mention her pregnancy or the king's sterility, but tells du Lac, “I no longer believe that Queen Gwen has the best interests of her king or kingdom at heart.” He then makes the decision to begin lowering the dosage of Brightol that he is giving King Arthur, replacing several of the pills he is carrying with sugar tablets. That evening, he gives the king a half-dose instead of the usual full dose, and watches the British monarch for any signs of change.

In 1955, American Mandate Commander Dwight David Eisenhower delivered a stark report to US Special Envoy Richard Milhous Nixon. "Ho Chi Minh and the Vietnamese Nationalists have just driven a hundred and fifty thousand Indochinese troops from the Central Highlands. He has twenty thousand of his men at our backs in Saigon." Eisenhower's tone made his contempt for Nixon clear. "We have twenty-five hundred troops holding our perimeter and General Patton's fifteen hundred marines holding the city. If we stay in Saigon and the Viet Cong attack, we die, sir.

In 31942, the stranger spoke to the author Robert Heinlein of the Forsaken Ones, the descendants of humanity who had been left behind by the builder of the Time Gate in the High Palace of Norkaal. Heinlein decided to use the Gate to find the High One of whom the stranger spoke.

In 1760, on the Turtle Island the Lenape chief Koquethagechton witnessed a routine action which disguised an unprecedented event. “White Eyes” as he was known stood fiercely on the quayside at Manna-hata (Manhattan). He was watching a Chinese Junk being loaded with Maize. Cowering on board and unbeknown to “White Eyes” were ..
.. two European stowaways, neither slaves nor commodity. Yet still in mortal terror for their lives; they were fugitives from death itself.

In 2005, former US President Edward Moore Kennedy published his auto-biographical epic “The Road Back from Chappaquiddick”. Incredulous readers were simply amazed by his recollection of the events of 1969. A new god fearing Senator Edward Moore Kennedy had emerged from his encounter with a doppelgänger; party .. Edward M. Kennedy
Edward M. Kenne..
.. animal Senator Teddy Kennedy had fused with Father Edward Moore Kennedy as the two were caught in a paradox of matter and space. A new day had also dawned for the girl as she escaped from the 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 to the riverbank of Poucha Pond. Whilst unnamed, everyone just ** knew ** it was her.

In 2999,Personality of the Triple Millennia” was all set for mind cast across the networks. The concept was as old as human broadcasting; a re-run of major events and an audience poll with an award ceremony. Technology had brought a number of new innovations to freshen up the format. And most daring of all, the candidates ..
.. themselves would be summoned from the past, to be interviewed by the mega personality MC Millennia. The first five instalments would feature candidates from that most interesting of times, the twentieth century. Trouble was, MC Millennia thought he was the show, and many wondered if the candidates were going to get much air time. Considering their long journey to make the show.

In 2008, he filed his lease agreement with the Phase 1 management office. There wasn't too much smiling going on in that office, they liked to keep the residents on the other side of the desk. Whilst condos were still being leased and sold, management wanted to keep the walls unscratched and the carpets clean and therefore .. Management Office

.. austerity of manner was the order of the day. Fun prevention officers, he called them privately. Say, he inquired will Phase 2 be finished before the Canadian winter kicked in? Oh, no was the response. He was surprised, you would think that a gap in the building program of two to fourth months would cost someone big time.
