My most popular blog posts of 2020

© 2021, Christian Cassidy

At the end of each year I like to take a look back and see what "dumplings" attracted the most attention.

It's no surprise to me that my most viewed post is one written back 2008, predating West End Dumplings, and has been updated a few times since. It is about Ken Leishman, a.k.a. The Flying Bandit.

There's so much interest in this guy more than 50 years after his big gold heist! Earlier this year, I was part of an Audible podcast about his capers.

Here's a rundown of my most visited posts of 2020. Those with asterisks were written in 2020:
