Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Public Enemy Zero is a thriller written by Andew Mayne (who is also a well-known magician). This FREE podcast is narrated by Justin Robert Young, and was released in 2011.

This book does contain descriptions of violence and mature language, and is suitable for Young Adult+ audiences. It is 20 files in length, and each file is about 15-30 minutes of listening time.

The Storyline

A naked man in the woods servilely obeys his Earth Mother. He then puts his clothes back on, and heads back out of the woods.

Mitchell "Mad Mitch" Roberts begins driving to work at the radio studio to get ready for his show. He stops on the way in, trying to be a good samaritan. A portly uniformed waitress has a flat tire on the side of the road. Mitch goodnaturedly heads back to help her...and barely escapes in his blood-stained car with his life. What the hell?

Later on, the same woman calls in to his radio show to request he play a song. Not taking any chances, Mitch figures he'd better get out of dodge.  Eventually, the police will begin to search for Mitch and he must use his wits to evade them. Mitch travels from a shopping mall, up through Florida, and finally ends up in Georgia. #runMitchrun

The story ends with the naked man back in the woods, pleased with his service to his Earth Mother. And looking forward to his next chance.
