  • #RedskinsPride hashtag campaign creates Twitter backlash. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid signed a letter R*dskins owner Dan Synder calling for the racist name to be changed. The letter was also signed by 49 other senators. The team's official Twitter account was used Thursday to tweet 305,000 fans asking them to show their #RedskinsPride and tell Reid what the team means to them. Whoops. Fumble.

    A large number of fans tweeted back that changing the name is a good idea and the team's tweet was a bad one. Example: (See also Steveningen's post).

    @Redskins @SenatorReid This team has ZERO self-awareness.lol

  • Utah students irked at their yearbook pictures Photoshopped to show less skin. Female students at a Utah high school didn't take kindly to the administration's decision to alter their yearbook photographs by covering up some of their exposed skin. The students were informed that photos might be edited, but after they saw what had been done, some complained that the editing was inconsistently decided.
  • Man arrested for obstruction of justice in Boston marathon bombing:
    Khairullozhon Matanov, 23, of Quincy is charged with "one count of destroying, altering, and falsifying records, documents, and tangible objects in a federal investigation, specifically information on his computer, and three counts of making materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements in a federal terrorism investigation," the U.S. attorney's office for Massachusetts said Friday.
    Matanov is not charged with participating in the bombings, but with trying to hide his connection to Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who authorities say planted the bombs at the 2013 race, killing three and wounding 200.

  • SpaceX reveals its next generation spacecraft:
    The biggest change from the Dragon V1 to the V2, aside from its man-rated life support system that can carry up to seven astronauts, is its landing system. Musk claims the Dragon V2 will be able land propulsively almost anywhere on Earth—or another planet—with the precision of a helicopter. As described, the V2 will be able to land gently under its own thruster power, much like spacecraft of 70s sci-fi.

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.
