I will note that in my micro, both Randi and Kolla immediately moved to defend themselves, thinking that the other one was there to attack them. I wonder what could give that impression.... it's almost as if there was some big misunderstanding or something.

Spindrifter has met Kolla, and vice versa... but did they meet each other? Randi is a dimension traveler. From the same continuity as America, keep in mind, in a multiverse where alternate histories abound. Hmmmn....

Regarding the other micro, you will note that I did not mention someone whose initials are S.P. by name. After all, there's no specific reason why any given person who is prominent in our world would be in the WU, even if there has been a lot of overlap so far. I do recall it being stated by one of CC (TINCC) that the 2008 election went differently from in our world, and IIRC it was even mentioned that neither Obama nor McCain were the front runners that year; presumably, the 2012 elections were even further removed from those IRL.

For that matter, there's no real reason why earlier elections couldn't have been different, even if the overall outcomes were the same; imagine if, for example, the 1976 Carter/Mondale ticket had been Carter/Brown instead (not entirely implausible in a world where the Space Shuttle was ready for its first launch in late 1975 ), or if Dole had to drop out after being injured by a faulty devise leading to Forbes winning the 1996 GOP primaries.

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

This scene should leave plenty of room for Kolla's, Marandi's, or others' bosses to move forward if desired. It also explains exactly what the Dead Poet was being blamed for back in "Chewing Through The Straps".

Nothing is as strange as 'It's pancake day'

Just ordinary folks who've figured out that it's easier to use subspace-routed telepresence for exploration and observation, and save the gates and/or FTL drives for commerce and other important stuff.

Did 'Jareth' pretend to be a singing Faerie lord in front of some angry humans, by any chance?

Public indecency, intoxicating drink, and something about a worm may have been involved in the indigenous ritual called a "double dog dare", which we are reliably informed does not, and more importantly should not, involve canines of any sort.

Damn, and here I was hoping to learn that Ziggy Stardust was autobiographical.

And just like that, Professor Tolkien had to write a multi-book epic for no reason what so ever. That's all I have to say about that. ;)

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
