Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!
We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group!  Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!

Ok, we have a current diary schedule.  If you would like to fill in, either post in thread or send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.

Monday: BadKitties
Tuesday: bigjacbigjacbigjac
Wednesday: Caedy
Thursday: weck
Friday: FloridaSNMOM
Sunday: loggersbrat
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

I don't watch much television -- the husband only watches a few shows, (including occasional surfing of something that features two "survivalist" American citizens dropped somewhere stark naked with whatever their favorite tool-du-jour is.  Since one of the survivalists is male and between 20 and 30 and the other is female (same age range) I suspect that most of the audience for this is male and they're tuning in for views of her backside (uncenstored) and the blurred-out views of her "naughty bits."

And then there's "Honey Boo Boo"... this week featuring something called smellavision.  More horrific yet,  it seems that some of her relatives feel that their lives are also worth a television series.  You'd think that someone up there in tv land would have eyeballed the premise and said "No.  Too stupid to live."  

But they haven't done this.  I don't know if Honey's relatives have kidnapped all the dogs of the television executives and are promising to subject them to unending underarm odor if the show doesn't get renewed... but someone needs to take these guys firmly in hand and explain that they're dragging down the collective IQ of the universe and they need to get those shows off the air.  

And scrub the airways afterwards, too.

So, my fellow IANites... it's time for us to help these poor network executives clean up the networks!

What show(s) would you cancel immediately if they made you Network Dictator For A Week?

Note from bigjac:
I put this diary up,
since I'm up,
and had a little time to do so,
and it was in the queue,
ready to publish.

I'm off from Walmart duties
for a few days,
so I don't need to hurry,
and I'm not worn out tired,
as I would be if I just got off work.

Have a great day!

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.
