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:

Received this e-mail today from CREDO Action for those of you who live in Los Angeles:
Governor Brown is touring the state on Tuesday to unveil his latest budget proposal, giving us an important opportunity to publicly confront him and urge him to ban fracking.

We know that Governor Brown won't stand up to the oil industry unless we push him to, so we need to seize every opportunity we can to press him on his hypocritical refusal to ban fracking. I hope you'll be there on Tuesday to tell Governor Brown that climate leaders don't frack.

    What: Rally to urge Governor Brown to ban fracking
    When: Tuesday, May 13, 11:45 AM
    Where: Ronald Reagan State Building, 300 South Spring Street in Los Angeles, CA 90013
    Click here to RSVP for the rally.


Governor Brown wants to be seen as a global leader on climate change -- and, in many ways, he is. But he can't credibly claim to be a climate leader if he allows the fracking industry to pump huge quantities of carbon into the atmosphere by fracking the Monterey Shale and burning billions of gallons of dirty oil.
