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.

  •  We are fighting back in court (1+ / 0-)

    or, my husband is.  My 69 yr old husband was on his way back from his doctors (on his Harley) when he was pulled over by a constable and issued a citation that only said "Disobeyed an officer".  He's like WTF does that mean?  My husband is a veteran, retired teacher, and never disobeyed an "officer" in his record, or even a driving ticket.  The short of it, his fine is over $300 which while not a lot, it is dear to a couple of old retired folks helping their granddaughter through college. He's going to court to fight.  He's willing to spend jail time and refuses to pay over $300 for something he did not do.  I told our son that I was going to get my husband a tee that says "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" to wear to court. This is Texas so its gonna be interesting.
