Ever since the Permian Era, trilobites have been extinct. Some people are bothered by this. Other people aren't. I am not bothered by this. Those who are bothered by it are malcontents. I am important, and I say so.

People who disagree with me are a minority of loud-mouths. I can also quote William Safire, as channeled by Spiro Agnew. Because I'm smart. And I have a fuzzy conception of contexts and boundaries.

If you are one of the people who is smart and sane enough to agree with me, you should do as I say. You're probably good at following directions. And please don't pay attention to the fact that I don't always do as I say. I am important. You are not. I can make up my own rules as I go along. You cannot.

I could write endlessly, about this. Believe me, I can write endlessly about just about anything. Most people are not perfect, but I am. I am never wrong. If you ever see me admitting to being wrong, hell will have frozen over. Hell will not freeze over. Because I said so.

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.
