Welcome to Kitchen Table Kibitzing, a new community series that will post nightly at 5:00 Pacific, 6:00 Mountain, 7:00 Central, 8:00 Eastern. remembrance and I came up with the idea for this series during Netroots Nation 13, and we're finally taking the plunge and launching it this evening.
As we envision it, KTK is a community for those who wish to share part of their evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and so forth. Or just say "Hi" if you've had a long day and are too exhausted to participate more actively. I would also appreciate links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate. I am usually unable to be around the site much during the day due to work and volunteer activities, and there have been far too many days lately when I didn't even have time to skim through most of my stream.
Please note that pie fights will be unwelcome in this community, just as in most other series at DKos. There's lots of space at the rest of the site for fighting with other Democrats, progressives, and liberals, and we don't want those battles dragged into this series. Speaking for myself, I am actively working with Democrats and especially with Battleground Texas to fight Republican gynoticians and other extremists in Texas, so I have neither the inclination nor the energy to fight with those who are allies at this site.
Finally, readers may notice that most who are posting diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but that definitely does not mean that newcomers will be excluded or unwelcome. We're happy to welcome guests to our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.
So go ahead and pull up a chair to chat. What's going on?
