With about a thousand apologies for how long it took me to get this diary together (go easy on me; today is my birthday) I introduce you to the Central Ohio Kossacks who came to our first meetup on November 17.

But first, a special guest. Gary Richards of local radio station WVKO, Ohio's Progressive Talk Radio, got word of our gathering and decided to stop by.


Gary came bearing gifts. Here's Kurt from CMH modeling his:


Looking just as stylish, but with the added touch of Buckeye pride, itsmitch:


Also in attendance, these lovely ladies.


At 9, 12 and 3 o'clock, respectively, that's fantomas, Spirit of Life, and lilypew.  The chick hiding behind Spirit of Life is me.

Ohiodem1 was also on hand. CayceP had RSVP'd but was friendnapped for some birthday celebrations.  There was lots of great discussion, politics and otherwise.  A particularly important item we all agreed on was this:

Netroots Nation, come to Columbus!  You'll love it here!

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.
