New blog-meat

Friend, neighbor and N&R reporter extraordinaire Margaret Banks has taken on the job of city government reporter from the recently departed Eric Swenson.  With the job comes a free blog called The Inside Scoop which has been languishing for awhile IMHO.  Margaret will liven things up over there.  I am convinced of it.  To wit… her first post gives some background…

“…Some of you who remember seeing the picture that ran with my religion column (1998-2001) may be asking this: Margaret, how can you, a mere slip of a child, already have 14+ years of experience in journalism? Simple: I was 12 when they hired me.”

    Don’t let her seraphic appearance fool you. Margaret is the Stan Swofford of the new millennium.

    Margaret had some very unique insights when the religion reporter so I’ll be interested to see what she comes up with reporting on city government.
