FAN #143: "Puputan" by Carlos Yu

Now up at the Sobel Wiki is what is by far the most important vignette in the For All Nails project: #143: "Puputan" by Carlos Yu, in which former Mexican dictator Vincent Mercator makes a surprise announcement to the world. Apart from Carlos himself and FAN mastermind Noel Maurer, none of us in the FAN cabal knew what was about to happen.

"Puputan" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 21 October 2002.

Although, you remember, the rest of the FAN Cabal saw this vignette in email before it was posted, and in fact before the coincidental Bali explosions IOW on 12 October 2012.

I'm doing #163 today and I'll do #175 tomorrow, leaving #144 to you if you don't mind. I am running the morning service at my church and will then be at a music festival most of the rest of the day.

True, but Carlos and Noel kept the rest of us in the dark for quite a while. And #144 is now up.
