Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

North Charleston- SC- Hungryneck Straphangers has a CARTA with the Candidates (For Congress) Ride ride set for tomarrow morning (Thur. Feb. 28), leaving at  7:36 am from the N. Charleston Kmart on the CARTA Express 1.  We'll take that bus all the way to James Island, where we'll pick up another load of rider/voters and return with the candidate to Charleston all on the same bus.

The candidates will either return to N. Charleston on the Express 1 or take the regular CARTA #10 depending on the passenger load.

Ric Bryant(R) is committed to ride on Feb. 28 at this time.  All candidates are welcome.

There is a special congressional election here to fill the Congressional seat vacated by Tim Scott(R), who was chosen by Governor Nikki Haley to replace Jim DeMint, who resigned from his seat in the US Senate to run the Heratige Foundation after being reelected in 2010 in a race made famous by the presence of Alvin Greene, the mentally challenged unknown who won the Democratic Primary while under indictment for displaying pornography in a College Dorm.  20 candidates are running in the Primaries including former Governor Mark Sanford(R), Teddy Turner(R, son of former CNN owner Ted Turner, teacher & philanthropist) and Elizabeth Colbert Busch(D, sister of TV Personality Stephen Colbert and local business woman.)

This is the Facebook signup for the ride http://www.facebook.com/...

Today we'll be handing out hundreds of post cards at bus stops throughout the area asking bus riders, people working in our hospitaltiy industry and others asking them to encourage the remaining 12 Candidates to ride the bus with us.  

5 Candidates have ridden CARTA with us thus far: Turner(R), Hoffman(R), Moffly(R), Carter Center(G) and Larkin(R)
Rick Bryant(R) has committed to ride Tomarrow
Colbert Busch(D) is scheduling her ride this week for a date probably in March
One Republican has indicated he doesn't plan to ride and opposes public transportation.  He also wishes to privatize the road system
1 Democrat, 1 Green and 10 Republicans haven't responded yet.

Full information on the effort, including images and the status of individual candidates can be found at  http://busec.org/...
