This has been a significant week at Solitary Watch, for two reasons. On Monday, nine months after our first post, we reached 100,000 hits. More importantly, this week we introduce our new Project Advisors, a distinguished group of lawyers, scholars, and advocates who have honored us by agreeing to provide advice and guidance as we move into our second year.
