FAN #161: "The Lesson" by Jonathan Edelstein

Up today at the Sobel Wiki are two more For All Nails vignettes.  First is #24: "That's Not Cricket!" by Noel Maurer, in which an Englishman is introduced to American-rules cricket in April 1972.  Next is #161: "The Lesson" by Jonathan Edelstein, in which a professor in Sierra Leone lectures his class in April 1962.

"That's Not Cricket!" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 11 December 2001, and "The Lesson" on 21 November 2002.
