Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further... And one fine morning... So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaslessly into the past. F. Scott Fitzgerald ~ The Great Gatsby ~

And one fine morning

Boats against the current

The Green Light

  • gtomkins brings us an intriguingly detailed account of why this primary season lasted longer than others, and presents a fresh perspective on the debate in Why momentum failed. (Yashua)
  • CatJab covers a public hearing about a hot-button issue that may send ripples across this country in Single Payer Heats Up in Chicago. (jennyjem)
  • khowell tells her late father Yes, I attended. It's the story of hugs, tears, laughter, and the emotions surrounding the loss of a parent. (grog)
  • GrimReefa contemplates a certain lack of innovation and unwillingness to change in this interesting take on The end of the Republican Party as we know it. (Avila)

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.
