It is now 12:20 AM Mountain Daylight Time, Wednesday, August 13, 2014 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

While merrily Kossing along, your humble scribe has HLN on the telly. The Nancy Grace Show.

I enable the audio as I tune the channel in; and, lo and behold, Nancy is blasting outrage against the authorities in Ferguson, Missouri regarding the death of Michael Brown! She's demanding the publication of the name of the police officer who shot Michael, and a full-blown grand jury investigation! WOW!

Praise to You, O Great Ceiling Cat!

Will wonders never cease?

(More below the Cosmic Cheeto!)

So what inspired Our Heroine Nancy to go all progressive and stuff all of a sudden?

Did Busta Troll send an Inspiration of the Holy Goat unto her, and fill her heart and soul with Moar Goatz?

Did she eat a bowl of pasta, only to discover that she had consumed the Flesh of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (rAmen!) ?

Did Ceiling Cat invade Nancy's dreams, and purr in her ear while she slept last night?

Or did she figure out that life in a world where anyone is subject to indiscriminate killing by those who are supposedly hired, paid, and sworn to protect them is not the world she wants her children to grow up in or live in?

Frankly, I don't really care. I'm just damn happy she's doing this!

The following is NOT snark:

Way to go, Nancy! You did this one right. Keep up this kind of good work!

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.
