In another roundup of Indiana news and comment, we have the impact of the Sequester, and the history of pi in the Indiana legislature for the day after Pi day, 3/14, among other things. Many around the country are helping us deal with the crazies here and with particular issues such as medical debt.

The previous Diary in this series was Indiana at dKos: Gun Meltdown Edition.

Technical query: I don't know why there is such a large gap before the table. It was even worse when I simply copied and pasted the table definition from the original Search page, before I made some simple but non-obvious changes. Can anybody suggest improvements to the HTML?

Although the following table results in part from a simple search for Indiana, I have modified it somewhat.

  • I have removed spurious references, such as pages mentioning "Indiana Jones".
  • The hover text on a search page is usually the first few lines of the story. I have substituted the key quote relevant to Indiana when that is not obvious from the title or the opening lines.
  • The columns are therefore not sortable. On search pages, sorting runs the search again, and thus provides different information than I wanted to give you here.

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.
