Welcome to the re-launch and first edition of the new-look KC!
You may be wondering why Kookynie needs a new voice, and even wondering where it is, Kookynie that is, not the voice. Because this is it’s new online voice, as the old printed one had dimmed over the years. Which is why it’s being re-launched today.
KC will fearlessly pursue clarity. Our mission statement is also about shining an Orwellian & Shavian light in the dark corners of our post-modern world in the promotion of truth and the American Way of Life (only kidding!). Actually we hate mission statements and managerial-speak, so forget that too.
Kookynie is not just a thriving semi ghost town of indeterminate population size in outback WA, north of Kalgoorlie, but also a veritable think tank of cutting edge political & social analysis. As for Gwalia, don’t even go there. It’s a hotbed of anarchist agitation.
The back bar of the hotel will leave no stone unturned – no, not the hoary old ‘no turn unstoned’ joke, as we don’t approve of recreational drugs and only moderate alcohol consumption. Think literal or metaphorical pebbles, as nearby goldfields are not exhausted of nuggets, some full of wisdom, of course.
Editorial policy is simple: whatever I think goes! Don’t spare the horses.
