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 have no idea if Hello Kitty is popular with little girls.  Hell, I don’t know what adult girls are into.

I do know that a year or so ago Fender guitars were selling a Hello Kitty guitar through their lower tier brand, Squier.  Not every child will sustain interest in playing music, but it has to be a better outlet than giving your kid an Uzi.

This week a 9-year-old girl accidentally killed a shooting range instructor with a fully automatic Uzi.  There are no federal laws mandating children being kept away from guns.  It’s a shame that thanks to organizations like the NRA, who’s mission is to put as many guns in as many hands as possible, that we probably need a law prohibiting children access to firearms.

Why would anyone want to hand an Uzi to a 9-year-old child?  You wouldn’t want one driving a car.  Hand them a guitar.

Please visit my site, Claytoonz, for more fun and silly stuff.


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).
