Of course I am.I couldn't quite recall the details myself, you're probably correct.
- France gains territory from Italy consisting of the restoration of the 1794 Franco-Piedmontese border, plus Savoy.
IOTL the phrase "magnificent desolation" was coined by Buzz Aldrin when he first stepped onto the Moon.Furthermore? Nice touch on the talk of the West versus the East - heck, that 'magnificent desolation' is exactly the kind of language geographers and historians of that time used in describing the Great Plains! It's still always fun to see the parallels of the various parts of America both then versus now and OTL vs TTL.
Methinks we're going to see the local ones gradually phased out as a sign of the increasing control from the UPSA.So she turned away and spread a newspaper out on her table, though inevitably the conversation in the bar was focused on the aeromen and it kept leaking into the back of her mind regardless. The Lima Indagador was like many newspapers had become in member states of the Hermandad lately: though all the pages were printed together, the outer ones were composed and set locally, while the inner ones consisted of both text and images that had been transmitted from the UPSA by Lectel. Though sometimes they tried to hide the transition, in this case it was pretty obvious as the pictures on the Meridian-penned pages suddenly switched to rougher and cruder spot-grid [dot matrix] images as they had had to be converted to pure data and telegraphed up here. The tone was also subtly different, with the Meridian sections being both more professional but also more distant and vaguer, written to a whole continent rather than a city or a kingdom.
Getting a bit Ministry of Truth here really.Mónica was a historian, the first female history lecturer at the ancient University of Lima in fact, and that had given her a nasty suspicious frame of mind. Therefore, while others might have missed it, when she put her monocle in she could distinctly perceive that the word ‘Peruvian’ had a subtly different typeset to the rest of the headline. That vague asimcon must have gone out all over the Hermandad, with each country assured that it was their young men who had performed the heroic feat. Mónica wondered if the feat had been accomplished at all, or if the whole thing had been staged. Somehow it didn’t seem as bad if it had indeed really happened with some Guyanans or New Granadines or whoever and there had just been a little lubrication applied to the truth to make it work better as propaganda.
Now that's clearly authorial foreshadowing going on there.Now he took his own three matchsticks and carefully arranged them. His fingers had the skill of a magician’s, but a magician would have wowed an audience with his swiftness, seemingly pulling the impossible from nowhere. This man did just the opposite, going slowly and meticulously, allowing his audience to follow every step. He wove the sticks together so that they formed a small triangle in the middle. At one end each stick was beneath the second, at the other end it was on top of the third. The result was that the interwoven triad held together as the man gently picked it up and sat it on top of the glass.
