– In a surprising move, Amerada VP Jon Weatherhead announced on August 18, 2002, that he is resigning from all his positions in Amerada and becoming a full time journalist for the WBS. In an even more surprising move, President Washburn appointed Liam Sinclair, a member of the opposition in Amerada, as Vice-President until elections in December of this year. These events were not the only surprise of the day, it appears that former PM, William Steeves, may be returning to run in the October Prime Ministerial election. Should this happen, President Washburn said that he will likely make current PM, Derek McCullough, the DLPA candidate for Vice-President in December. Steeves was impeached in December 2001 for telling everyone at micro-nations.org to go F themselves and subsequently, embarrassing Amerada.
