    It would be. We'll see if he uses that idea or not, though.

    Har! Well done, both of you. ;)

    An interesting prediction here, your Majesty! :) I really enjoy seeing all of the different Presidents lists you all come up with. :D

    He did! Because President Kennedy's withdrawal was not completed until 1967, Stockdale was still shot down and captured, as per OTL.

    Yes. Negotiations for the release of U.S. prisoners are currently underway in Paris, as Secretary of State Nixon and Premeir Giap's foreign policy team are at work on the ceasefire agreement.

    What’s Jerry Brown up to ITTL? Will he go onto being Governor or perhaps Senator?

    Jerry Brown is (as per OTL) currently serving as California's Secretary of State. He has announced interest in running for Governor in 1974 or Senator in the future, though he is in a crowded field for the Gubernatorial race should he choose to enter. Jesse Unruh, James Roosevelt II, and others are all eyeing the position as well.

    He may be the first Governor to be recalled.

    A distinct possibility, should he remain in office long!

    Recently while perusing some interesting threads here on AH.com, I came across an idea which someone mentioned in a "Cool Alternate History Ideas that Aren't Often Used" Thread. Someone made the suggestion of telling a relatively "typical" story set in an alternate timeline. Rather than taking a "macro" view of history, one which weaves its narrative primarily through the eyes of the TL's major movers and shakers, they suggested taking a more "micro" view, and zooming in to tell the stories of average, everyday people living in this alternate timeline, to see the real, lived effects the major changes have at the ground level. I've been mulling this concept over in my head and possibly applying it to Blue Skies in Camelot intrigues me greatly. I am, with finals and this TL, already rather busy, but as the new year approaches, I had been hoping to start working on another project as well.

    Thus, I want to pitch this to you, my beloved audience, and gauge your interest. How interested would you be in a second, supplementary story, starring some original fictional characters of mine (and possibly your's, I always welcome suggestions), and set in the world of Blue Skies? I've been thinking that it would be a sort of "family scrapbook" of diary entries, letters, and memoirs, written by the Rogers family, a typical American family which begins in 1962 around our POD and carries through to whenever Blue Skies comes to an end. I would, of course, continue to update the primary TL as regularly as possible. I just think it would be cool to cover both the macro and micro viewpoints.

    Let me know what you think! :)

    Saddam - Serving as Vice President of Iraq and slowly consolidating his grip on power there.

    Assad (the Elder) - Just recently come to power as President of Syria, he is positioning for a continued close alliance with Egypt.

    Khomeini - Living in exile in Najaf, Iraq.
