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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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.

Please begin with an informative title:

The Boston Globe's Andrew Ryan tweets:

Confirmed with 2 sources. RT @gintautasd: Menino expected to endorse Warren Friday http://goo.gl/...  #masen #bospoli
And the Dorchester Reporter's writes:
Mayor Thomas Menino is expected to endorse U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren at a Friday rally in Roslindale, sources tell the Reporter.

The afternoon rally in Roslindale Square will come after a debate scheduled for Thursday night between Warren and U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.

Menino has been sitting on his hands for a long time on this one.  It's about time he did something right for the voters of the Commonwealth.

He's one of the few Massachusetts politicians whose endorsement can really make a difference.  The Boston GOTV operation is a very powerful one.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Andrew Ryan again, this time in the Globe itself:

Mayor Thomas M. Menino is expected to endorse Democrat Elizabeth Warren on Friday in her bid to unseat Republican US Senator Scott Brown, according to two people with knowledge of the plan.

Menino will appear with Warren Friday afternoon at a rally in Adams Park in Roslindale Square, according to the two people, who spoke on the condition anonymity because they had not been authorized to discuss the plan.

The news was first reported Thursday morning on the website of the Dorchester Reporter. The endorsement will end months of speculation about Menino, a Democrat with a close personal relationship with Brown.
