FAN #61: "Picking Up Slack" by Johnny Pez

Now up at the Sobel Wiki are my own For All Nails vignette #61: "Picking Up Slack" featuring French Premier Yvette Fanchon in June 1974, and David Mix Barrington's #94: "My Father Was a Gambler Down in Georgia", featuring Southern Confederation Governor Lennart Skinner in July 1974. Why yes, the FAN Cabal was fond of pop music references; why do you ask?

"Picking Up Slack" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 3 March 2002, "My Father Was a Gambler Down in Georgia" on 15 July 2002 (28 years to the day after the vignette took place).

A slight correction -- Skinner is the powerful governor of the enormous state of Georgia, not the relatively insignificant governor of the SC.
