Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

King George's Counterfactual History

Published on Monday, December 19, 2005 by CommonDreams.org

Just imagine the following scenario in 1775:
 
King George announced that the elections in the American colonies, held with his full blessing and support, had once more demonstrated the wisdom of Great Britain's occupation of North America. "The elections offer proof that the colonists will not be swayed by the terrorists in their midst whose continued attacks on our brave soldiers are signs of desperation. We will remain in the colonies until we achieve victory."
 
The King brushed aside voices from Parliament demanding a timetable for withdrawal of British troops. "Our critics, while sincere, are terribly misguided. To give in before our mission is accomplished and victory secured would only give aid and comfort to the terrorists and undermine British credibility in the world."
