Case Orange contribution
Welcome, "D." Thanks for your recent (and first) contribution to what was my very first contribution to the Wiki long ago, the Case Orange article itself. That note was an interesting find; it makes you wonder of the order of succession, if religious figures held political office as well, or if each colony had a governor that would have preceeded Colonial government officials in succession first. --Spencerian 10:29, 27 September 2006 (CDT)
Nice how things are parallel like that. All of this has happened before, of course. ;-) I was wondering about it when I read the article - 43rd sounded a bit large. Indeed, this is an aspect of Colonial government that's never really been explored, and may become relevant in the coming season. What would happen if Baltar were assassinated? Is there a procedure for impeachment and removal from office? If so, by whom? In my other life I'm a policy student with an interest in governance issues, so this kind of question intrigues me. Thanks for the welcome, "S." --Distantantennas 1:38, 27 September 2006 (EDT)
