Alternate Historian's Note: Thank goodness for Stephen Payne, who is providing the alternate history for us as we continue to recover from a bug – from a particularly plague-ridden alternate universe, we're sure. We'll continue the second half of our NaNoWriMo novel this weekend (hopefully!) as soon as the contents of our stomachs settle down. In the meantime, we hope you are enjoying the change in format – let us know how you feel about it in comments or by emailing us. This will be the format of TIAH throughout the holiday season, unless we receive a great outcry about it. Speaking of the Holiday Season, keep in mind those who need help year-round and keep yourselves safe and happy, as well. And, should you feel generous inclinations towards our guest historians, you can visit the sites of those who have separate ones from TIAH; generosity towards us here at the Academy is always appreciated, too, and you can find ways to help us out all over the site. Right now, we'd appreciate a lead on a good day job, but my lovely Co-Historian could also use some more memory on her PC, if anyone feels generously inclined. (It's PC133-style – yes, it's an old machine). Any good wishes you have towards us can be emailed here.

in 1948, seven former Japanese leaders sentenced to death by hanging at the International Military Tribunal for the Far East are executed at Sugamo Prison in Tokyo. Missing are Emperor Hirohito and Prince Asaka who had escaped to the island of Formosa, where they formed an unlikely partnership with Chiang Kai-shek and his KMT government-in-exile to forge the first Asian Tiger in the 1950s using the entire gold and foreign currency reserves of China and Japan. -entry by Steve Payne from Counter History in Context - You're the Judge!-

in 2004, outgoing US President Al Gore pardons his former boss, Bill Clinton, and former First Lady Hillary Clinton for the many scandals that forced Clinton's impeachment and subsequent resignation. -entry by Steve Payne from Counter History in Context - You're the Judge!-

TIAH Editor says we'd like to move you off the blog, if you're browsing the archives - and most people are - more than half of them are already on the new site. We need to be sure the new web site accomodates your archive browsing needs because we don't want to lose any readers. Please supply any feedback or comments by email to the Editor and please note the blogger site is shutting on December 1st.
