I'd like to suggest the addition of a new section to DK. I'm calling it School Me. Kossacks who want to bring themselves up to speed on topics, or work through things they don't just understand, post questions. Other Kossacks answer them, to the best of their abilities.
For example: I am pretty confused about this whole "the Senate hasn't passed a budget in years" thing. So I posted a conventional diary asking for explanations here. I found the answers I received very interesting.
1) I worry that I might be annoying other Kossacks by posting insubstantial diaries
2) If it were archived in a "School Me" section, other Kossacks wondering about the same thing could find it easily.
In short: I think this would be a good feature that would make easier for us to learn from each other, and it would arm all of us with more knowledge and information without degenerating into echo chamber talking points.
