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:

Yesterday I put up a diary that was thrown together at the last minute. It took both Amanda [Vetwife] and Gordon Soderberg to straighten everything out. I apologize for that. The problem has not been solved. So, here we go:
A member of The Veterans Green Bus crew is stranded in St. Louis, MO and needs to get to San Jose on Sunday. I called Alaska Airlines where I still have a few accrued Air Miles and on Sunday - if there are any seats still available, the cost will be $630.00 or 27,500 Air Miles to get him on the plane.

A. To donate money to buy the ticket Just Click right here.

Those miles to be donated can come in any chunk or block of 1000 miles from any airline. There are two costs associated with your gift:
1. $25.00 just to start the process.
2. $10.00 per 1,000 miles to be donated
4. Then on the next page I'm the recipient: RICHARD PIERCE and my Air Alaska mileage account # 106777893

As soon as we have enough miles or money or both, I will buy the ticket and take down this diary.
                              Thank you beary, beary much  


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).

           HEADS UP, SAN JOSE KOSSACKS - LARGE MARG is in the city
                         and Gordon could use a good meal and a place to sleep tonight.
In hopes that the crew member will make it to San Jose Gordon has driven Large Marg to San Jose. If you want to invite him to your house, call him at Nine-Eight-Five-640-Eighteen-01. He's a good guest, great cook [just have 2 dozen eggs, pepper jack cheese, and 2 pounds of bacon ready or pasta, sauce, and something like a meat or fish]. He's one of those skinny guys who can eat, and eat, and eat.

Also, since Gordon should never be left with time to kill, invite friends over and he will entertain. He has a guitar and knows how to use it.
