I regret to tell you that I'm going to have to miss Netroots Nation.

I need to have surgery - fortunately, minor surgery - and the best guy in the world on this says we shouldn't wait beyond next week. Between his gentle insistence and the facts that I will not be missing any work (duh) and that it should result in a significant improvement in one area of my health, I'm going to go ahead and do it now. The problem is that while I'll (hopefully) be out of the hospital quickly, the process demands that one reserve at least two weeks of not really moving very far from a bed, let alone travel even by car or train.

I apologize to the organizers and of course all of you who are attending, and want to thank Nolan Treadway in particular for his understanding and assistance. I hope you have a great event and I'm sorry I can't be there.

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.
