Let's see what day one brings

Welcome to the new Web site - blogs and photo galleries and RSS feeds OH MY! The new and improved Kingman Daily Miner home page, courtesy of Richard Haddad, director of Web operations for Western News&Info, launches us into the new millenium - and only a nose hair or two (months) behind the county's recent Web site revamp.

Which brings us to the first order of business - the blog title. There is an official quite critical of us newspaper Gollums, and he has said so in two recent columns. There were numerous descriptors aimed at yours truly, and although the column's content was quite unruly, one Jimmy Olsen reference, I felt, was quite a flattering deference. It was meant as a poke, but Olsen, as Superman's super sidekick journalist, was no bloke. And so I've chosen for this blog title my admirer's allegation, accepting that I am a Jimmy Olsen wannabe, as it's a welcomed accusation.

Happy blogging.
