I am working a little bit with a guy at a museum in Saipan on Koreans who were there during the Japanese colonial period. I wrote a post about it at the Marmot's Hole and and just linking to it here so I can more easily access it for future research.
It turns out that this blog will not close (but thanks for the love in any case). I am keeping the Republicans Abroad-Korea blog open and it turns out that I can also keep this one open with the same plan (I have downgraded my service at Typepad).
However, my 'public' blogging will still be at the Marmot's Hole with this space reserved for personal stuff like baby pictures.
