My profession requires me to answer my phone throughout the day. I get calls from all manner of area codes, so I can't really screen them either.

This afternoon, I received a call from (773) 554-3932. This is an Illinois number. I haven't lived in Illinois for several years, but still have an IL area code for my cell phone.

Today's charming call was an over-the-top, homophobic robocall outlining all the disasters that will befall the Land of Lincoln if the gay mafia has their way. It bordered on sounding like a Poe to me.

They convinced me, however, and I certainly decided to donate...

...to Illinois Unites for Marriage

Until midnight, Human Rights Campaign is matching donations.

Splendid! Although I wonder if they're sending my money. :)  Each time I get a homophoborobocall, I donate to somebody. Last time was HRC. Before that was Lambda Legal.

I know that donation money is tight, but you might want to consider pitching in a spare copper or two if you can.

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.
