Sunday November 9, 2008  Got restarted on the story now titled “A Matter of Forms.”

***The newsgroup soc.history.what-if is devoted to alternate history.  Some posts are written as if from alternate worlds, dealing with such questions as “What if JFK had been assassinated?”  These are called DBWI’s (from Double Blind What Ifs.)  One subset of these:  reviews of could-never-happen “West Wing” plots which are what did happen in our world.

There’s now a thread about the recent US Presidential election as a “West Wing” plot.  James Nicoll gives it a thumbs-down for lack of plausibility and inconsistency with what’s been established earlier:  http://tinyurl.com/6xalyd
