Intestinal Fortitude

The state of TIAH

December 22nd, 2006

Alternate Historian's Note: Stephen Payne provides the alternate history as an intestinal virus decides to make its home in your alternate historian. We'll continue the second half of our NaNoWriMo novel this weekend 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 0, Mullah Elijah Rafsanjani searches the town of Bayt La (Bethlehem) for the birth room of Jesus. He's starting to get very excited now. -entry by Steve Payne from Counter History in Context - You're the Judge!-

in 1944, German troops accept the surrender of United States troops at Bastogne, Belgium as the disastrous Battle of the Bulge reaches a decision. -entry by Steve Payne from Counter History in Context - You're the Judge!-

in 2004, former US Marine Jack Smith makes damning allegations regarding President-elect John Forbes Kerry's actions outside the Senate committee on April 22, 1971 following his famous “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” speech. Smith recollects that Kerry and other veterans threw their medals and ribbons over a fence on the front steps of the U.S. Capitol. However, Kerry still possesses his medals in 2005 and Smith explains this apparent anomaly by revealing that Kerry threw someone else's medals in an act of showmanship. Smith and Kerry – he alleges - had purchased the medals at a market sale in Greenwich Village, New York in December 1970. Vice President-elect John Edwards is thrilled with Smith's performance; at this rate he's going to be sitting in the Oval Office before Easter. Perhaps Harry Truman's record ascendancy to the Presidency after only 82 days could be beaten! -entry by Steve Payne from Counter History in Context - You're the Judge!-
