Blue Skies in Camelot: An Alternate 60's and Beyond

Yes there is an update in the thread from like the late summer/early fall from President_Lincoln. He intends to go to the 2000's I think it was? Life is in the way, we all hope he's doing well and comes back strong in 2021, but until then we're kind of just all keeping the thread alive until then.
 
happy to bump this thread, i read all of it in like less than a week. very good alt history, although it did make me mildly upset about TTL being better than OTL.
 
Happy new year from Australia. 2020 was a terrible awful year. It started off with bushfires here in Australia followed by of course the COVID 19 global pandemic that forced all countries to close their boarders, mandate mask wearing, separating families, shut down multiple TV and movie productions and forced many of us into isolation in our homes. It continued with the tragic video of George Floyd which led to the Black Lives Matters protests throughout the US and the World. In hindsight 2020 was a boiling point for many issues that have largely been ignored but due to COVID have came to a head. It is New Years Eve here in Australia so I wish everyone here a happy new year. Let us pray that in 2021 the COVID vaccine can restore some sense of normalcy to us. Best wishes to all of you.

You also forgot about Breonna Taylor’s death along with Kobe Bryant and his daughter dying in the plane crash.

Hate to be ‘that guy’ but this is sounding really current events-ish.
 
Something I've been wondering about is how did OTL's California farmworker's strike go? You know, with Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, who both - of course - found a political crusader in the form of Bobby Kennedy, who as I gather, is gonna be an Associate Justice in the 1980s and of course, never ran for President.
 
Oh and, side note, I started reading this timeline last month, and it's been very much a guilty pleasure of mine to read, especially considering I've taken to reading a chapter here and there during a particularly boring period or free one :p (bad habit, I know, I'll do my best to kick it, heh). And it's inspired me so much, I'm planning on changing my username to President_Udall16, hehe. If my profile picture isn't a dead giveaway as to my favourite (second fav) president of this TL.
 
And just a little gift to the readers of the timeline, I was looking at some Time magazine covers and I slightly edited an OTL one so that it can fit ITTL. I see it being published sometime in the 1990s as historians would begin to reevaluate President Bush's legacy - after all the contemporary negativity over the economy and domestic issues. Imo, I see him being remembered as a fine foreign policy president who did his very best in domestic policy and made long term improvements. (i.e. deflationary measures). Something of a George Romney who ITTL is being remembered as a strong domestic president and someone who did his best foreign policy wise. We'll see how my favourite cowboy, Mo Udall, is gonna do here foreign policy wise.
Best wishes everyone, stay safe. And @President_Lincoln stay safe, and we know you're doing the very best you can with whatever endeavours you may be undertaking.

Nice edit.

Just found a photo that could also be used for the timeline of Bush with Kissinger discussing Cambodia or him giving a speech along with Speaker Gerald R. Ford
