Our siglines - those succinct glimpses into someone's soul, or acerbic comment on the contemporary scene, or eternal truths - are going away. In Daily Kos 5, they will become popovers - no, that's not right - pop ups: mousing over a user's name will pop up a window with what used to be a sigline along with other information about that user.
Our siglines are like the facets of a gem: sparkling with light cast in a multitude of directions. I wrote a number of thematic sigline diaries a while ago, about favorites, funny ones, ones from MLK and Gandhi, action links, the environment, and siglines and civility. This diary is just a snapshot of some siglines from a recent large diary. If I missed yours, feel free to comment - your current sigline is permanently attached to the comment so it will be archived here.
If folks enjoy this one, I may do a few more before the launch of DK5.
