  • I really thought I had a shot this year:
    US President Barack Obama named as TIME magazine person of the year
    Of course they haven't named a woman in 26 years.
  • Okay, you've written a book that "proves" there is a heaven ... so, what comes next? What else! You go on Fox to hawk it by connecting it to the massacre of 20 school children:
    After [Eben] Alexander confidently asserted that the murdered children would have experienced “being welcomed into comfort and love beyond our human understanding,” Gretchen Carlson blithely reminded viewers that Alexander had “left this Earth for a week” and gone to heaven, then asked, beginning to cry, ”Will these children forget, when they’re in heaven, what happened to them?”

  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin joined us to discuss Fiscal Thingy dealmaking and the reemergence of "11 dimensional chess." Then, Evan Macbeth, aka Paradox13, on what it's like to be one of Nate Silver's 538, that is, an actual presidential elector. Finally, still more reflection on Newtown, and how the NRA and its allies force Republicans to be even more anti-science, and how we all lose as a result.

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.
