 are going on in the world besides Michael Jackson's untimely death.  I suppose I should have expected this wall-to-wall coverage, but, sheesh, that doesn't mean I have to like it.

 I've got some writing to do.  I've got some reading to do.  Need to walk the doggie.  A few emails to send out, etc.  So it's not like I have nothing else to do but catch up on what's going on with Iran, Obama's meeting with Merkel, Sanford, North Korea, the Energy Bill, Health Care Reform, and the like, but sheesh!  The pack mentality of of the media even extends to my favorite, non-stupid news shows and hosts.  How disappointing.

 Disclosure:  I wept when Jerry Garcia died and got mighty choked up when Johnny did.  Whenever Bob goes I'll probably just shut down for a couple of days.  I'm very sorry (really) that Michael didn't make it til old age but I was never a fan.  But looks like no meaningful (t.v.) political news til sometime next week.  Oh, well, like I said, it's not like I've got nothing else to do.

 UPDATE:  Just for good measure.  Heh.

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.
