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:

A while back over at my home-base blog TexasKaos, txsharon mentioned that she'd be coming to Austin for the opening night show of No End In Sight.  

So, I have been stressing for a while that I wouldn't get to see No End In Sight with my Texas Kaos buddies on August 31st.  I'm committed to being at the Labor Day Fish Fry (which I certainly look forward to-I love hush puppies), and the schedule conflict has been a real downer.

Then I checked the Travis County Democratic Party calendar and saw that this Thursday, Dan Grant will be screening the film at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.  More below the fold...


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).

Hat tip to BOR for more details on this unique screening hosted by one of the candidates for Congressional District 10.

Dan's experience on the ground in Iraq gives him a unique, insider's perspective on the war and its effects. While in Iraq, he was an advisor to the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq for the Iraqi elections, and was a consultant to international military forces and local leaders in Baghdad, Basra, Fallujah, and Mosul.

I've already got my ticket.  If you can, come out.  If you can't, be sure to check it out on Friday at the Arbor Cinema with txsharon and others of the Texas Kaos gang.  Hell, if you can make it to both, DO IT!

And, if you guys are going to hang out after the Friday show, somebody please call me and tell me where you are!  I'd love to have a drink and share your thoughts on the film.
