Thanks, Kelley. :-)

Of course this list would come from "The Federalist."  Bastards.

Anybody read L. Neil Smith?  I heartily recommend:

The Probability Broach [1]
The American Zone [2]

Rollicking good fun, dangerously subversive to boot.  (In a good way.)  
Libertarian / anarchist sci-fi.  Many-worlds / alternate history where 
the Whiskey Rebellion succeeded, George Washington was executed as a 
traitor, Madison fled the country, the "Congress" has only met 6 times 
in history, "None Of The Above" was president for 4 years, and America 
got to the moon in the 40s...  all consequences of the addition of a 
single word to the Declaration of Independence:  "...the *unanimous* 
consent of the governed..."

The Federalists, of course, are the bad guys.
