OK, there's something weird going on.

First, let me admit that, as a Democrat, I'm fully supportive of Michelle Nunn seeking election to the U.S. Senate. Like any first hire, she's a crap shoot. But, she's got a great first name, which I hope to see much more of in the run-up to 2016.

There, having admitted my personal bias and not being entirely over-the-top enthused (yes, I know it's not a word) by Ms. Nunn, I have to say that, while the latest video out of the Nunn shop is sort of lame, the Youtube response is really peculiar. Indeed, it is something I've never encountered before in uploading 93 videos myself.

To be specific, I encountered what can only be termed a "caution" on a video which the campaign obviously desired to be spread through social media. To wit:

This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.

"Unlisted?" Is that supposed to be like an unlisted phone number that only intimates are supposed to have?

Why is it that the internet being a public venue is so difficult to comprehend.

More attention needs to be paid to Ms. Frances Persons:

Some people touch our lives in ways that change us forever.  Miss Elizabeth Cannon, as I knew her in the 1930's, was one of those people.

As my seventh grade teacher, Miss Cannon helped me develop a love of mathematics that has lasted a lifetime. Her kindness, patience, and generosity, set an example that had an enormous influence on me.

This year, I had the chance to connect with Michelle Nunn and I can tell you this – it doesn't surprise me one bit that Miss Cannon's granddaughter has dedicated her life to public service.

Let's hope Michelle inherited the love of numbers. We could sure use that in Washington.

Like the use of the word "public."

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.
