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:

Well, we finally have a location.. and we have some serious news to go with it.   Since announcing we intended to have a Kos meetup here in KC, we've had a lot of contact from people who are on Kos and not, as well as people wanting to bring friends.   Recently, I've had a chance to talk to a few of the Democratic campaigns here in Kansas and on the Missouri side of the state line, and we are looking at some nice attendees.. as a result, we now have a venue and information.


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).

We will officially be meeting at the Overland Park Marriott, occupying a ballroom.   This should be EASY for anyone to find, as the Marriott is providing signage to mark which ballroom we will be in.

Event is November 16, Saturday

10800 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, KS 66210

We have the ballroom booked from 7PM-11PM, rooms are available in the hotel if you travel from a greater distance.

We are working on attendees from:

The Davis Campaign
The Wakefield Campaign
Emmanuel Clever's Office

And we have non-Kos attendees from Planned Parenthood, and other organizations.  

What started out as a pretty small meet has turned into an event with a lot of people who have contacted me, asked if they can be involved.  

There will be a short presentation (yes, a powerpoint) at the beginning, Marriott is going to cater food, including a Vegan/Vegetarian option.  

Please note: for right now I'm "out of pocket" on this, so contributions to the kitty will be appreciated by not required.  

So, if you haven't decided you want to attend, let me tell you: you want to attend.  If you have friends who are on Kos or not who are thinking they want to come, come.   This will be a good chance to personally meet some of the staff and potential candidates as well as a way to interface with others in your community who will be active in races around the metro.

We look forward to seeing you there!
