CEDAR RAPIDS — Todd Dorman, hired just six weeks ago as a full-time columnist at The Gazette newspaper in Cedar Rapids, launched his non-awaited online blog to decidedly muted fanfare.
Dorman, 37, christened the new site — 24-Hour Dorman — at a lightly attended ceremony. But that lack of interest didn’t dampen his spirits.
He boldly predicted 24-Hour Dorman would soon attract a small but devoted following of at least 9 readers. The name “24-Hour Dorman” beat out “Shut Up Todd” and “Corridork” in worldwide balloting.
