Things have been busy for Joy and me. Joy defended her dissertation and is now Doctor Joy Romanski. NYC elections were typically nasty and disappointing. On the sad side, our cat died last weekend. We knew it was coming, but we are still sad to see him go.

This week I have a lot for my NYC readers: a rundown of election results, reminders about David Yassky's corruption, and discussions of the Comptroller and Public Advocate runoffs. But I am also returning to my coverage of the rest of the country.

Here is this week's newsletter:

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.
