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.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
Another unforeseen problem with hoarding ammo. Hell fire!
We desperately need the media, the scientific community, and politicians to speak, and speak forcefully against the anti reason, anti science kooks that run this country. This thing is about to snowball out of control. The American version of the Taliban is real.
Fire officials said ammunition that was being stored in a West Knoxville home exploded after a fire erupted there Sunday morning.
A woman who lives at the home, which is located on Herron Drive off of Northshore Drive, told officials she woke up to the smell of smoke.
She managed to exit the home safely, and a neighbor called 911.
Knoxville Fire Department's Captain D.J. Corcoran said the ammunition explosion startled firefighters, especially with the Webster, New York incident still fresh on the minds of many emergency responders.
Corcoran said firefighters struggled to find a safe entry into the home, due to clutter inside. That delay allowed the fire to extend quickly into the attic area and breached the roof.
