Alright alright, so it's not BREAKING but I just saw it and figured I'd share.
Because I don't believe in "coincidences".

FEB 17 2013 San Diego CA: In anticipation of the Sunday Biggest Climate Rally Evah in D.C., thousands of highly intelligent mammals rallied in support in the Pacific Ocean to demand President Obama keep his SOTU promise to save the planet. The dolphin mega pod, sans the traditional cardboard protest signs, made up for that lack by simply assembling en masse. Unprecedented numbers. The dolphin rally, estimated at about 100,000 dolphins, spanned seven miles long and five miles wide.

"“They were coming from all directions, you could see them from as far as the eye can see,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of stuff out here… but this is the biggest I’ve ever seen, ever.”"
Much like the companion human rally in DC on Sunday, the event was all but ignored by mainstream media who were cleverly deployed to Florida - no dolphin sightings but an important tiger was said to be there. The Tiger was evasive and the news-thirsty journalists despaired.



“You had to be there to experience it,” he said.  “It was truly spectacular.”
Thankfully, over in the left-o-sphere, the usual suspect Leftie blog sites provided abundant citizen journalism and covered the various Climate SOS events profusely across their Front Pages.

Oh wait.

Because... ya know... priorities.

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.
