The inclusion of the original "errinf" GBCW diary in a comment today gave me a grin, because I noted that it had the "Best of Daily Kos" tag.

I think that I snuck four diaries into the tag "Best of Daily Kos" -- the last of them published in February 2007 -- before I was stopped by mysterious forces.  I know that I wanted to smuggle in a fifth one -- I can evoke it for those who remember it with just the words "Obama" "turbine" and "head" -- and I just tried tagging it again, but no dice.  So, along with that link, here are the other four diaries that did make it into my version of the Pantheon.  Enjoy.

I think that we should have a committee of some sort that notes diaries that should be included for future consideration in this category, but that no diary should be added to the Pantheon for three years until after it is published, so that we know that it has staying power.  Some of the humor in the above quintet won't translate fully, but I'm guessing that enough will get through to make it worthwhile.

Happy reading.  I'll put the wit of our authors up against any those of any other website.

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.
