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:


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).

Happy Pi Day!  Eight Ways to Celebrate Pi Day.  Teach your children about Pi Day.  Five Pi Day Videos.  It's the most, geekiest, time of the year.  Google Doodle.

The War on Pi Day.  Have some more.  Cobbler.  Tart.

Pi is irrational.  A decimal expression that never ends and never repeats.  A perfect Meta 4.

Am I making sense yet?  Good.

So last night was an example of my capacity for distraction.  I don't care to share.  I haven't given up yet on volunteers for next week.  I can pretty much handle the diaries but my attention will be elsewhere.  March Madness is upon us.

Tonight The Daily Show is from 2/19 and the guest is Alison Brie.  

Alison rates only the one segment, but Al Madrigal has perhaps his best bit ever while Jon blathers on about Chevaux and Meteors.

Next week's line up from Late Night TV is Monday Sandra Day O'Connor from 3/5, Tuesday Rachel Maddow from 2/28, Wednesday Steven Brill from 2/21, and Thursday Paul Rudd from 3/4.

The Colbert Report is from 2/20 with Stephen hosting David Goldhill.  His special guest was Alexi Lalas on corruption in The Boring Game (link here).

The part I especially liked was about herring though he too talked about pickled sheep brain.

Stephen's guests next week are- Monday Emily Bazelon from 2/19, Tuesday Jon Favreau from 2/28, Wednesdsay James Franco from 3/5, and Thursday Paola Antonelli from 2/27

A reminder- busy, busy weekend.  We will not cover Selection Sunday though it marks the beginning of my grand research project on the 2012-13 College Basketball Season (Men's and Women's), but I'll doing the start of the 2013 Formula One Season (Australian Grand Prix Qualifying and Race Live Blogging) and we will have St. Patrick's Day special programming as well.
