    this idea and no one else did? I already write for a small town paper; I can't think of a better place to send the best pro-Dem diaries than your local paper, if you live in an area that's up for grabs.

    It is a brilliant idea--the only stumbling block I see is that some editors are going to screen out letters to the editor that don't come from local addresses.

    But some editors won't, and diarists can submit informative fact checked pieces as "guest commentaries." It's definitely worth diarists' time and efforts to try; the cheapest way to get the facts out to the public.

    Congrats on a great idea.

      in the past.  It's not unique to me - I'm sure other people not totally absorbed in their favorite blogs are doing similar things.  

      I just hope more of us will get out and about for a bit.  Come back here to refresh, collect info, share insights and then spread them to the rest of the country.

      but those posts get buried under pigs and lipstick, just like in the msm.

      this diary was a rescue. we need to rec diaries that actually do something instead of spin wheels and hype.

      just my humble community-organizer opinion.
