Syria still very much on all our minds today, and as usual we differ from the framing we're being offered by the punditry. Greg Dworkin rounds up the home stretch of the NYC primary elections, the choosing up of sides on Syria among columnists and commentators, how Marco Rubio has written himself out of the script for 2016, and a special call-out for David Jarman's "Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest: No, Republicans can't win with white voters alone." After a run-down of headlines of the stories waiting in the wings (including the very intriguing WaPo entry, "Hiding in N. Virginia, a daughter of Auschwitz"), a look at a CNN piece on the new hotness in recreational shooting: exploding targets. From the world of #GunFAIL: a 3-year-old girl accidentally shoots & kills herself with her parents' gun while camping in Yellowstone National Park. Thanks to Sen. Tom Coburn for enabling that. An exploration of the meme that a failure of a Syria vote in Congress dooms Obama's second term agenda. Discussions of Nicholas Kristof's "Pulling the Curtain Back on Syria," and David Cay Johnston's "Failed Policy -- The 401(k) Shrinks In A Growing Economy."

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.
