Thanks to tonight's Top Comments contributors! Let us hear from YOU
when you find that proficient comment.

From alx9090:

This comment by stellaluna is something that not enough people are saying out loud.
From Ninepatch:
In David Harris Gershon's diary Ferguson protesters chanted, "Hands up, don't shoot!" Darren Wilson supporters replied, "Shoot!" bastrop's comment sent chills down my spine and may very well be the most powerful I've seen that speaks to the fundamental issue underlying this tragedy.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

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.
