Michael Matthew Bloomer, October 22, 2013

Just in:

(CBS/AP) KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A special prosecutor has been appointed to look into the alleged Jan. 2012 alcohol-fueled sexual assault of 14-year-old Daisy Coleman and her 13-year-old friend in Maryville, Mo.

Circuit court clerk Elaine Wilson said Monday Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker has taken on the case.

Reminiscent of the Steubenville rape case, it's once again time to ask:
Assaults on women are common, for them it's like wearing a target on them all the time

Michael Matthew Bloomer spent the 24 years between Reagan and Bush II on Capitol Hill as a legislative research and policy wanker at the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, an agency in the belly of Congress's across-the-street library, the aptly named Library of Congress. I'm now retired and joyously freed from nonpartisanship, and I've "come out" as an aggressive progressive at my website, They Will Say ANYTHING!,There you can delight or despair by skewering GOP Congressloons, Senadorks, Me Partiers, and others of that herd. Stop by for a sometimes serious, sometimes funny, and always aggressively progressive POV, and with plenty of fun graphics to boot!

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.
