Lost in all the rhetoric here on the Daily Kos, the New Nebraska Network, and many other places around the nets about whether or not Sen. Ben Nelson actually supports Nebraska's Democrats, let alone Nebraska's citizens, is the story of Mike Snider. Mike sat down in front of a camera, did a video for Democracy For America and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, and told his tale about how the rise in health insurance costs was affecting his business and his family. All of us yahoos that have ranted and raved about that video, and its implications, have lost sight of the fact that Mike needs our help.

I highly recommend that each and every one of you, when you find yourselves in the Omaha area, stop by the Syzzlyn Skillet in Ralston and help Mike's business out by having a meal there. Be sure to tell him you're a Democrat and that you will do all you can to help get a health care plan passed that will help him, and others like him.

I had to pick my step-daughters up at the airport in Omaha last night and stopped by, only to find that the place is closed in the evening, but I'll be back. So go early - and go often.

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.
