A Year of Chawing Rosin
It’s been a year since I created this blog.
I think I’ll indulge in some retrospection. There have been more than 47,000 visits to the Chawed Rosin since my first post, but only 218 comments. People are shy, I guess. Looking back at the archives, I see that my first week of posts consisted of photos of Helsinki (where I was living at the time),
an antiwar song,
a link to audio from the military tribunals of Guantanamo detainees Hadj Boudella (left) and Mustafa Ait Idir,
and a post about old newspaper illustrations.
I’m still posting lots of photographs, antiwar music, old ephemera, and occasional country music, and I’ve tried to include regular reminders for those who read this blog that there are hundreds of prisoners being held by American authorities without having been charged with any crime.
My most popular post ever was a scan of a Lysol ad I found in an old magazine,
Update: I am happy to report a sharp increase in visits to my puppet video posts. Aren’t they nifty?
