Who and what?

The first decision I had to make when setting this up was what to call it. I toyed with all kinds of politically clever names, many including double food entendres. None of them seemed particularly fitting, so, for now, it’s Raconteurs and Roustabouts.

The name comes from a Tom Waits song, “Small Change (Got Rained On With His Own .38)”. Tom Waits, like Bob Dylan, doesn’t have the prettiest voice but, also like Bob Dylan, is an amazing storyteller–or Raconteur. And why put up a blog if you don’t want to be a storyteller?
