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:

T steps on my foot

I say OW (along with many others)

T says, I don't need to apologize because it was not my intention to step on your foot

and besides i've been stepping on people's feet for years and they never asked me to apologize

and you are inhibiting the completely unfettered freedom of movement I have always felt entitled to and have always demanded

and you don't pay me enough to go to the trouble of worrying about whether I step on your foot or not

and you wouldn't complain about my stepping on your foot if you liked my political message

and stepping on your foot did not hurt all these other people whose foot I did not step on

and stepping on your foot did not hurt ME in any way

so if you are going to insist that I not step on your foot in the future, i have no choice but to decide not to spend time with you anymore

Have I got it about right?


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).

UPDATE:  1:30pm 11/29

For posterity, I think a link to the cartoons in question should be part of this diary:

The cartoon that sparked the warning

An earlier cartoon where the simian features are even more pronounced

He came here to get eyeballs for his own webpage, so these links will oblige.
