More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Faith-Based And Community Initiatives (none)
    Commerce Secretary Donald L. Evans
    today announced the appointment of David Bohigian as  Executive Director of the Department of Commerce Office of Faith- Based and Community Initiatives.

    "We must ensure that the faith that animates the lives of so many Americans is not inordinately restrained from advancing the public good through faith-based and community programs," said Evans.

    The President announced his objective to launch a faith-based and community initiative in an Executive Order issued on Jan. 29, 2001. The initiative is working to make it easier for these organizations to work with the government by giving them equal footing with other contractors when competing for federal dollars.  By eliminating bureaucratic barriers and regulatory hurdles, the program is dedicated to providing better services for those in need.

    In addition to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, the President  has established centers for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives at nine other agencies:  Departments of Justice, Education, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban
    Development, Agriculture, Veterans Affairs, Agency for International Development [USAID], and the Small Business Administration.

    The Department of Commerce has a long history of providing grants and assistance to distressed communities and small and minority-owned businesses.  The new center will help eliminate regulatory and other barriers and enable faith-based and community organizations to deliver outstanding services in these areas.

    Michael K. Powell --  Article last January on resignation

    FCC chief Michael K. Powell

    Powell, son of outgoing Secretary of State Colin Powell, has completed four years at the helm of FCC. His exit will end a tumultuous four-year tenure marked by battles over indecency on the airwaves.

    Powell has said in The Washington Times that he was uncomfortable waging the war on indecency, a reference to the stormy period after singer Janet Jackson's infamous performance at last year's Super Bowl show. Powell, who had opposed tight regulation of telecommunications, backed unprecedented fines against broadcast indecency.

    Powell has been quoted in media reports as saying that he has completed a bold and aggressive agenda and looks forward to spending more time with his wife and two sons.

      Re your: where you wondered about Bedord, TX ie..[[G]  But what about the odd links to C I HOST in Bedford TX or to AnaServe Inc. in CA?

      I think I have found something important in the Texas/national scheme: and powered by A.C.T.

      Robertson also split his organization and moved "Christian Coalition of America" to Bedford, Texas, assuming the tax-exempt status of Christian Coalition of Texas and effectively circumventing the IRS ruling."

      Sorry to litter here but want to run this by you...I am having a little problem looking and following the tracks of this site.  Thanks would you please contact me??
