FAN #199: "What's on the Vita Then?" by Sir Francis Burdett

Up today at the Sobel Wiki we have two more For All Nails vignettes.  First is #111D: "Kill All the Lawyers" by Noel Maurer, the final installment of his vacation quartet, in which the U.S.M.'s Secretary of War provokes a constitutional crisis in September 1974 by refusing to let the President fire him.  Next is #199: "What's on the Vita Then?" by Sir Francis Burdett, a look at the new 1975 vitavision season in the C.N.A.

"Kill All the Lawyers" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 10 September 2002, and "What's on the Vita Then?" was posted on 18 December 2002 as "Anything Good on Vita Tonight?"  The title was changed at the request of David Mix Barrington for the sake of the Monty Python reference.
