Communities have been forming to the right of us, to the left, to the south and north of us. Do you agree that it’s time for the Chicago area to represent?

I know some of you do because you sent me a Kosmail in response to navajo’s announcement a week or so ago on NEW DAY that I was the contact person. Others of you are people I’ve seen commenting or dairying and concluded you lived in Chicago or know that you do.  Actually, I’ve been trying to do something since early summer…. Then life intervened and now the election’s almost upon us and fall/winter holidays are almost here.

So, further dillying and dallying cannot be tolerated. How about getting together sometime during the week before Thanksgiving? How about the get-together being held at one of my favorite Greektown haunts, Pegasus?

The floor is yours as to interest and suggestions. I am not wedded to any particular place or time. Once we have at least a few people committed to a time and place, we can get this thing going. Navajo has already made a beautiful banner for us.
So? How about it? Are you in? Suggestions are needed!


Oh, here's our beautiful banner. If I knew how to place it properly it would be a wonderful thing but I don't so any technical help would be ecstatically received.

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.
