Union Station (Washington, D.C.)Christopher Columbus Memorial Fountain, 22 May 2011.
This will be the 7th diary I've written about tomorrow's Virginia/DC/Maryland meetup at Union Station DC. While there is no sure fire way of reaching everyone who might be interested in attending, I figure publishing multiple diaries is my best bet. My goal was to write 8, but my computer crashed two days ago and it took several hours for the Geek Squad to make things right.

Tonight I have been searching the house for the name tags I purchased a month ago, and also washing my orange shirt, because of course it was in the laundry.

Tomorrow we'll leave the house at 10:30am because we're taking the Silver Line into DC and I haven't done that before and I really want to get there by 12:30. So I won't get your kosmails if you send them after 10:30. If you decide to come to the meetup and you don't know who to look for, just look for two people wearing bright orange shirts. I mean, what are the odds that anyone who isn't part of our Daily Kos meetup would be wearing bright orange shirts in the food court at Union Station? Unless they're part of a little league team.

If you have an article of orange clothing, please wear it.

Details:

August 23rd, from 12:30 - 4:40 pm.

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.
