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:

I was going through some old mail, and looking over what could be considered chit chat to most, but to others, each word written contains another nugget into the mind of what most considered one of the most brilliant minds, ever.

I just felt like sharing a quote or two from these epic, personal letters.  


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).

This is a quote from a letter dated December 21, 1933

A.E. has moved to Princeton, and he's not really that thrilled.  Seems it's s bit strict, and it bothers him.

So, onto this tidbit.  

" I have already had a fight with the director of the institute here, which is completely settled now.  I think that this will be the ongoing situation here. The people here are curiously formal and lack individuality.  It is not easy for someone to be accepted.  The German influence is fatal, and the antisemitism is very pronounced, even it it is covered in fine manners."

Being of limited abilities myself, it might be fun for others with a keen interest in A.E. to have a little insight into the chit chat that took place some 80 plus years ago.

Yah, it's real.  Let's not get into the how and why, and is it real.  I just wanted to share.
