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 a thing against right wing talk radio, and in Indianapolis, that means WIBC.

WIBC has a host named Greg Garrison.  Greg is the normal type of conservative host, pompous, arrogant, given to saying that people who don't think like him are brainless (Obama), Marxists, basically stupid and brainwashed.

So, as he is an easy target, I've kept up a running commentary against his grosser stupidities.



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).


You can Google Greg Garrison EMMIS, Greg Garrison WIBC...  I think it's a game.  After all, WIBC has chosen the politics of stupidity, so they should expect some push-back.

Today the producer and telephone screener at Greg's program emailed me.

Criticism and dialogue have always been welcome. For a while, you operated under the rules of civility. Quite some time ago you decided to step away from those rules and got very ugly.
I’ll make a deal with you Dana. If you stop abusing yourself and quit listening to the show (and sending e-mails), I won’t forward ALL of your e-mails to the folks at (your job).
Now, is that nice?

I have fun with aliases.  Demosthenes (From Ender's game), Rabid Blonde, Nemesis (from Resident Evil), Dana...  I've never been interested in blocking my IP addys, or being particularly subtle.  I let everyone at WIBC know when Greg is lying or exaggerating or being a moron.  It is fun, and keeps me on my toes.

But...  Whatever should I do about this threat?  Oh dear me, should I get a lawyer?  Should I cower in a corner?  Should I just end it all now???

(I am a drama queen...)
