I looked at the ~/News/shimbun/nytimes/nytimes/columns/.overview
file and found several problems ("~/News/" is specified by the
gnus-directory variable).

1. There are no proper Message-IDs.
  Shimbun compares those saved IDs and IDs of retrieved articles
  in order to know which articles are new.  So, they have to be
  unique each other.

2. The date form is not good.
  You can use the shimbun-make-date-string function for it.

3. There are no authors' mail addresses.
  It may not be a problem in Gnus, but some MUAs may require
  that they are in the proper format like normal mails.

I think to look at other sb-* modules is helpful.  For instance:
sb-cnet.el, sb-asahi.el, etc.

Anyway, please enjoy creating shimbun modules. :)
