  1. my new years wish from tblpod: i read thomas de waal’s “the caucasus, an introduction”. there is a detail i disagree with that awould merit debate tblpod. de waal claims the rose was a sign of the protests on 2003 that misha then adopted. i witnessed the protests the rose appeared outside of parliament once misha used it when barging into the chamber. my proposal for a discussion: where did the rose come from?

    • The rose is shrouded in myths. Charles King in his “Ghosts of Freedom” assumes roses weere given to troops guarding government buidlings. Did anybody witness that? Are there photos of this around?

  2. For those with access to scholarly journals and interested in food safety in Georgia – I recommend this article by Elizabeth Dunn:

    Dunn, E.C. (2008). Postsocialist Spores: Disease, Bodies and the State in the Republic of Georgia. American Ethnologist 35 (2): 243:258.
