    As someone pointed out, this deserves a diary. I wasn't commenting on the quality or relevance of the comment; just on the fact that it is a huge block of contiguous text that appears in a fleeting post. It is a formula that is guaranteed to get it ignored.

    I know, because I've done exactly the same thing.

    I know that it sucks to see that diary you worked so hard on go zipping down out of the stack, but this ain't gonna help either.

    There has been a great deal of discussion about ways to alleviate the "5 minutes to the Rec List" syndrome; but I'm not sure if that will ever be solved.

      I was perfectly apoplectic listening to Bush's speech today ( which was actually, a lot more like a poetry slam)(and, running on a treadmill at the time didn't help my physical/psychological/emotional state of mind either) and jumped off my friggin' self-mocking symbol of non-productivity to add my diatribe to what seemed like kind of an open thread.
      I have never posted a diary here, and don't really know where to begin.  My own blog has become sporadic; I reconnoiter the blogoshpere to comment (anything and everything is an excuse not to write) - sincerely, mind you -  to avoid writing the story (or finishing the novel) on which I am working.  In life, I am laconic.  On a keyboard, I am a loose fire hose at full throttle.

        Do it yesterday...

        Right now, I'll ask you to suspend disbelief and allow the total hack-amateur to tell the bonafide-pro what's up.

        Just peeped your blog, upshot: your writing is drop-me-dead-on-sight killer prose.  But, the layout you presently have does not do it justice.  

        Please bring it all into the lime(tan)light of Dkos.  We could use your concise, and yet historically thorough, concept skills around here; I bet you would be front-paging in little to no time.

        All that hose needs is a ladder and some hands, my good friend.

        That'll be $.02, thank you.

          You should post diaries here. Even diaries that don't make the Rec. list will be more widely read than most personal blogs. DKos gets a gazillion hits a day.

          No guarantees for how they will be received. It's like the Peer Review Process From Hell around here. People can be shockingly crude and demeaning. In a personal blog, they don't usually care enough to express themseleves. They just go elsewhere. In a community, however, they take the time to throw poop at you.

          However, as yesterday's little Kaloogian Party shows, they can be very supportive as well.

          I look foward to seeing more work here.

            Love it or leave it, this place is armchair politco-QB-central...  I take it as a big positive tho.  You learn, you love, you go to bed smelling like dookie.  I'm a champion poo-hurler myself, and don't mine speaking my piece, even where said(typed) piece is barely worth reading in it's own right.  
            Like this comment for instance.

            PS - I was fired from my last job for discussing "poo-flinging" on the corporate intranet message board.  Does that make me a champion, or a total, damned loser?  Both you say?
            PPS - Chris Griffin made me do it.

              PPS - Chris Griffin made me do it.

              I never watch TV, so I wasn't sure who Chris Griffin was.

              Thanks be to Google.

              Sounds like a story...
