I have copied several of my previous posts, as the BBM informed me he was unable to do so.

Thanks Steve and good job!

Congratulations Steve! Can you tell "how" you managed to create this online forum with your local paper, so the rest of us can work at it on our "local" levels?

Thanks, Diane

See Arnie's one-word answer.

Interestingly, the BBM promised a Y2K forum over a month ago. I openly enquired as to why there was a delay, speculating that there was pressure from the editorial board.

Who knows? I asked the BBM whether he was at liberty to discuss the Y2K status of Journal-Sentinel, Inc. This is his response:

Offically, the answer to your question is "No, I cannot discuss the Y2K status of Journal-Sentinel, Inc." Unofficially, I'll let you know that I belong to 3 company-wide committees and multiple sub-committees about Y2K. That's just scratching the surface of what we're doing. We are bound and determined to produce a paper on January 1, 2000, as well as January 2, 2000.

All I can say is, to quote Dr. Seuss (I have a 14 month old): From there to here From here to there Funny things Are everywhere
