FAN #138A: "Broken Regiment" by President Chester A. Arthur

Now up at the Sobel Wiki, along with articles on the Declaration of Independence and the Rainbow War, are two more For All Nails vignettes.  First is #138A: "Broken Regiment" by the pseudonymous President Chester A. Arthur, in which the sheriff of a small beach resort town finds himself facing a marauding shark.  Second is #154: "Necessity is the Mother Of . . . " by the nonpseudonymous Bernard Guerrero, an account of Mexican naval armament during the Global War.

"Broken Regiment" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 21 October 2002, and "Necessity is the Mother Of . . . " on 25 October 2002.

I am thinking that I will leave Chet's pieces for you
to post and carry on with the Global War ones and then start on Mike's GNW series, until you get back to advancing the main narrative past Christmas 1974.

I saw your note about Wikia eating articles. That has happened to me but only in a particular way. Using Lion on a Mac, I sometimes accidentally slide the current page away. Wikia correctly asks me whether I really want to leave a page with unsaved edits, then hangs when I tell it that I want to stay on the page.

Sounds like a plan. I'll call it History Week at the Sobel Wiki.
