  1. Is the Myth of the Lost Cause a myth in of itself?

    Thank you. I really didn't want to have to dig that up again.
  2. Is the Myth of the Lost Cause a myth in of itself?

    Hey, here's an AH challenge: Come up with a POD in which the South abolishes slavery before, say, 1861, and then still have the Civil War somehow happen on time for non-ASB reasons. Takes some effort, huh?
  3. Is the Myth of the Lost Cause a myth in of itself?

    The nullification crisis had been a matter of settled law for nearly three decades by the time that hostilities broke out, and cannot realistically be considered a casus belli in this matter. And, yes, the United States did secede from the United Kingdom due partially to taxes, but also due to...
  4. Is the Myth of the Lost Cause a myth in of itself?

    Any complaint that the Confederate states had outside of Lincoln's hostility towards slavery and attempts to keep the institution from spreading were the sorts of typical economic and regional issues that are dealt with by Congress on a regular basis. They were used as window dressing at best...

    Honestly, that and a lack of detailed familiarity with pan-African politics at the time are two of the reasons that I avoided this. I do plan on having some settlers in some part of Africa, but I haven't quite decided what to do with it.

    Yeah, but she had to have weighed, what, about ten pounds soaking wet?

    By all accounts, she was a petite woman, so you could probably get some decent distance..

    Yeah, both Rothbard and von Mises made that observation regarding her group. I just decided to take it to the logical extreme (and "The Fountainhead Filibuster: Tales From Objectivist Katanga" was a huge inspiration for this development).

    Look, we'll pick up where we left off, all right? But cut the passive-aggressive bullshit insinuations. I want to get the story out there right, so I'm talking to you, but I'm not going to sit here and deal with lies and slander. We understand each other? Right. Okay, so it was late 61, and I...

    Happy Days A moderately successful 1992 cable anthology series about people in pursuit of happiness. Dark in tone, the show explores issues of greed, alcoholism, drug and sex addiction, vanity, and selfishness. All In The Family A controversial docuseries following the incestuous relationship...

    There's been talk, but also concern over the litigiousness of the Disney company. Sorry about the delay in an update, folks. I'm getting back to it, but my sleeping schedule has been erratic lately. My daughter has an exceedingly rare genetic condition that requires constant supervision, and...

    That's quite a long read! Thank you, and I hope you'll enjoy what's coming up.

    When I told my wife that I was going to start work on this again, I mentioned that I was tempted to add a disclaimer of "The last one was meant as political satire, not prophecy!" Weird thing is, Trump WAS a partial inspiration for this ten years ago. During the 2008 campaign, there had been...

    The word started at the top, and trickled down into the usual places: wiseguy bars, the backroom betting parlors and floating craps games, the diners and mom-and-pop restaurants in Little Italy. It reached the ears of made men and common thugs, of hangers-on and professional assassins. An...

    I'm in. Let's ride this to the end.

    Ah! From the way it was posted, I thought that it was an acronym of some sort. My mistake. Yes, they were definitely a prop.
  17. The Oceans Divide: A World Of Laughter, A World Of Tears II

    I'm frankly impressed that someone would remember that detail from nearly 10 years ago. Well-done. Also, a nod to James "Jimmie" Dodd: I absolutely loved writing him, as he was very much the voice of (relative, and allowing for the times) sanity in the narrative at various important points. He...

    I am so out of touch. What does P.R.O.P. stand for?

    Here's the first post, just in case anyone is in the mood for background. Here's the last one. WENDELL! So good to see you! DM me and let me know what's happening in your life! People, this is the man, who, on a long-departed AH forum other than this one, saw a joking caption that I'd posted...
