Has anything at all been worked out about this lady? Zahir 19:57, 25 Sep 2005 (PDT)

Not much as of yet. She was a physician and lawyer. I suspect she was active in what passes for the women's movement in the NAL. That's a whole nother can of worms, and something we know absolutely zilcho about. Most of these GMs were called into Being based on "types", so they might be reminiscent of real people but are not necessarily based on actual persons. "Juanita" is the name of one of our former mayors -- so that explains the name. [PB]

Picture of Juanita Edith Baker-Stuart

I'm sorry, but the first thing that came to my mind when I saw her name was a picture of this lady see also: [1] and [2]. Did whomever created Juanita Edith Baker-Stuart have Tammy Faye Bakker in mind? I think it would be quite the interesting cross...a televangelist's wife running the NAL after he gets put away for fraud. BoArthur

Me, I have no idea who made up the name. I just added a few details and a picture. Zahir 21:49, 27 Sep 2005 (PDT)
Where did she get the name Juanita from? The NAL isn't a Castilian country by any shot of upwards of 20,000,000 leagues! Did she have Floridian ancestry? Or did her parents simply like the name because it was "exotic"? Juan Martin Velez Linares 14:41, 25 Oct 2015 (CDT)
Probably the same place Utahns came up with LaFawn, LaVell,and any other such names in the early 20th century. Chalk it up to whimsy. BoArthur 11:57, 27 October 2015 (PDT)

The A2 incident

While there was spying, I don't think it would've been to the extent of fly-overs or fly-nears, for that matter, not like *here* because there wasn't much of a Cold War *there*, if I'm not mistaken? BoArthur 19:44, 27 Sep 2005 (PDT)

I must disagree. No intelligence agency worth its salt is going to turn down the chance at lots of useful data. I'm not suggesting that Russia was the sole target of such flights, or even the primary one, but that its intentions and deployments were certainly something the NAL would want to keep its eye on. This would be especially true in the decade or so following GW2, since Russia changed sides. Zahir 21:48, 27 Sep 2005 (PDT)

Oregonian Independence

I see that GM Baker-Stuart had her tenure while the NAL officially recognized the independence of Oregon. Humorously, these events would transpire in the same year as the A2 incident, in 1958. Therefore, I find it likely that the Octagon House would take the opportunity to officially recognize Oregon's independence and begin peace talks and economic trade agreements to distract from the incident. It would be a symbolic gesture more than anything, as Oregon was de facto independent for over a decade at this point. However, it could neatly coincide with the apology for the incident and relieve tensions between the NAL and its neighbors. It would also be a proud political moment for the PC's to tout, that they prevented an armed conflict and promoted peace and laissez-faire in the world. Maybe she gets nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize--who knows? What do you guys think? --Gwaell 17:47, 19 February 2021 (PST)
