Tonight's Rescue Rangers are Unitary Moonbat, grog, claude, mem from somerville, shayera, and alfonso nevarez, with sunspark says running the edit machine because she had so much fun yesterday that they just couldn't drag her away.

It's July 18. On this day in 1936, the first Oscar Meyer Wienermobile was introduced and Generalisimo Francisco Franco led the initial forays of the Spanish Civil War. One can only speculate on whether these events might have been connected.

Here are tonight's hidden gems uncovered by the intrepid explorers of the DR:

In the Stuff About Money category:

  • Second-time diarist mbez paints a grim picture of The View from Long-Term Unemployment Land. (claude)

  • jamess just got out of one of "those" meetings, and has some thoughts on Doing More with Less. (Unitary Moonbat)

In the Politics on Both Sides of the Pond category:

  • Tom Borthwick explores political terminology and ambiguity of meaning in A Brief Essay on Partisanship and Language. (mem from somerville)
  • Like being slapped in the face by John Boehner himself, Marianna76 finds herself Tango'd from the Tanning Bed as the British National Health Service is cut and outsourced and warns that similar politics are at play on this side of the pond. (Alfonso Nevarez)

In the Interesting Miscellany of the Day category:

And finally, A Few Thoughts On Loss:

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.
