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.

Please begin with an informative title:


What follows is a news release regarding Occupy Flathead.


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).

Saturday, October 6, Noon to 1 PM at Kalispell's Depot Park, will mark the 52nd consecutive weekly rally in support of the Occupy Wall Street principles:  Money out of politics, corporations are not people, and a level playing field for the 99%, among other concerns.

Starting last year on October 15, 2011, more than 100 people showed up for the very first Occupy Flathead Rally.

Attendance over the next seven weeks was 60 people in the second week, then 40, 35, 28, 24, 25, and 24, before settling down to the faithful 10 to 15 that have shown up every single week without a miss for one full year.  A cumulative total of 830 people have been present over 50 consecutive weeks to bear public witness and keep the Occupy issues in the local conversation.

The group keeps count and reports getting about 25 to 1 positive responses from passing motorists, indicated by horn honks, waves, thumbs up and the peace sign.  It is encouraging that most everyone smiles and waves as they pass by, showing they get it and support the interests of the 99%.

The group encourages all who believe the Occupy principles are important to support to come out once again publicly at Depot Park on October 6 at Noon to celebrate 52 straight weeks of Occupy Flathead.
