Some weeks I may include a short diary of my own. All the commentary in this diary is my own unless otherwise noted. I will be experimenting with when I post this diary, so you may want to subscribe if you are interested.
More below the fold.
- Diary must have verifiable sources.
- Copyright standards must be followed. The sources must be quoted in part and referenced (no complete articles).
- Writer must comment or show some analysis of the article (no "link only" diaries)
The opinions expressed in the diaries are not necessarily my own.
If I missed anyone . . . sorry.
