I've been asked a few times recently to explain why I chose 'va dare' as my DKos handle so I went looking for a link to an old diary I'd written about that very question. In searching for it, I came to realize that five years have passed since I chose it and  that I've now crossed some barely-discernible threshold to become a bona-fide 'DKos Old-Timer,' hearkening back to some brighter-orange (if not golden) era.

So, here is one of my earliest DKos diaries - posted Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 04:37:52 AM EST. Since most Kossacks were (at that very moment) enroute to some kinda weird party/gathering in Las Vegas (does 'YK' ring a bell?), my diary rec'd 11 comments but only one person clicked the Recommend button. So here it is again, with some tweaking. I'm still looking for feedback on this so please comment below, especially if you've got a moniker-meta story to share.

We have so many insightful and powerful diaries written here at Daily Kos. Our diaries inform, inflame, impassion, and even entertain. We Kossacks have strong voices and an even stronger will to be the change we wish to see in this country.

One of the richest, and perhaps most under-appreciated, areas of thought come in the form of comments attached to these diaries. Here at Top Comments we strive to recognize and promote the talent of this community by highlighting outstanding comments found throughout the day by the diarist, and through nominations sent to TopComments at gmail dot com by your fellow Kossacks. These nominations are subjective, and certainly not complete (as no one can read the complete site on a daily basis!). But hopefully they will serve to shine a light where deserved, and to give the reader a good starting point in finding conversation on the site. Please come in and make yourself at home!
