pelosi roses
Community member Brainwrap helped Nancy Pelosi celebrate her 70th birthday by organizing a "flower bomb" -- and you guys responded to the short, three-day effort, by having over 2,600 roses delivered to her office today.

On their Flickr page, Pelosi's office writes:

Thanks to the community at Daily Kos, and others who joined in, Speaker Pelosi received thousands of roses this morning for her 70th birthday. She sent half of the roses to Walter Reed Army Medical Center and is distributing the other half to hill staff to thank them for all their hard work on the health reform legislation.

Very classy gesture from a very classy community. Thanks to you guys, both Walter Reed and the Capitol are brighter, happier places today.

And quite the contrast to the neanderthals on the other side, huh?

Pelosi also recorded a quick thank you:

Update: Transcript of YouTube thank you message:

Thanks very much to the Kos community for this fabulous birthday---these fabulous birthday wishes.  

I've shared many of your good wishes in the form of these beautiful roses with our men and women in uniform at Walter Reed Hospital; shared some of them with our staff who all worked so hard to make this victory possible.  

But I want to not only thank you for the roses; thank you for the sentiment that comes with it.  Thank you for the hard work that you did to help us create a comfort level for Members and for the American people that the time was now for healthcare for all Americans.  As a right, not a privilege.

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.
