Yes, I know that these are "tailored to me" based on who I follow, but I changed it to United States and Muslim is still there.

How sad, that on a day like today and a time like this we don't see "heroes" or "first responders" or "give blood".  How about the emergency contact numbers, why isn't that trending? There are so many other things to be reporting or talking about, but one of the biggest things the major networks are focusing on is the fact that President Obama didn't say "terror".  Casually slip in that a person that may be Saudi may be being questioned because he was running from the explosion, and the result is what we now see on twitter. Pretty sad.

Even more sad is this nasty tweet by Eric Rush. He said he was being sarcastic, and then proceeded to insult and hurl profanities at anyone challenging him.

The act committed today was horrible and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this. It is so disheartening to have to have such ignorance on public display as a result.

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.
