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:


Unlike most corporations that hoard their profits or otherwise have a tendency to make life miserable for their employees while lining their personal pocketbooks, the "corporation" known as Keith Olbermann is helping out his alma mater AND honoring a couple of very important people in his life who helped make him the voice for so many without a voice.


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).

Keith's broadcasting career began at student - run radio station WVBR at Cornell University. Apparently, the current facility is not as close to campus as it should be, and, with all the new rapidly - developing technology in the broadcasting field & the cramped quarters, the station needed a little "boost." That "boost" has arrived via a very generous donation from one of its more well - known alumni.

The new facility will be known as the Olbermann - Corneliess Studios. No, the "Olbermann" here is NOT Keith; it is in memory of his father, Theodore Olbermann. Most of us remember Keith's powerful sharing of helping to care for his father & helping to bring the health care reform debate to a human level.

The "Corneliess" in the equation is a former station program director, Glenn Corneliess.

More information about the story can be found here, and a picture of the check presentation is here. And, how 'bout that dollar amount?! :D
