  • Hi, honey, how was your day?
    Attorneys for Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, will spend Monday locked in separate hours-long meetings trying to convince federal prosecutors that the first couple should not be charged in the gifts scandal that has dominated state politics.

    The meetings open a new, critical phase of the investigation, timed to help prosecutors decide over the next few weeks whether to file charges, according to two people with knowledge of the investigation.

  • If you've ever considered barking at a police dog, don't:
    A Sun Prairie woman was arrested early Saturday morning for repeatedly harassing MPD K9 Slim. Slim was alone in the back of a parked squad car while his handler responded to a nearby call, in the 400 block of N. Frances St. The officer could hear Slim barking and "sounding extremely agitated." She returned to see what was happening and saw a 22-year old woman putting her face close to Slim's. The woman cupped hands on each side of her face and began barking into what separated her from the police dog – a squad car grill. The officer went to talk with the suspect. She refused to identify herself and said she was only "talking" with Slim. A private security guard approached and told Slim's partner that the woman had actually gone barking several times up to the squad window, even after he told her to stop. The officer told the suspect it is a crime to harass a police dog and that she was now under arrest. The officer says she routinely parks downtown while responding to calls, and this was the first time in 2 years that someone repeatedly taunted Slim.
  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show: the Miranda/Greenwald story, about which we got a few comments in from Armando. Yelp! joins ALEC, and the origins (to which I'll lay partial claim) of the campaign to review ALEC on Yelp! Best part: this thing really happened thanks to what our own MissWrite did with it! Brian Beutler's "What I learned from getting shot." The hidden impact of #GunFAIL. Chris Christie reverses himself on a sniper rifle ban he himself suggested. A not-exactly-GunFAIL story that falls into the sarcastic "no one could have predicted it" category. And a look ahead at stories we'll forget to cover in the week ahead!

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.
