Here are some noteworthy diaries from the last seventy-two hours:
- We have had some good on the ground reporting. First, check out Jenny Greenleaf's reports from the spring DNC meeting: Like moving a sand dune with a teaspoon and DNC Meeting-New Orleans-Part 1. Candidate John Laesch offers us Saudi Ambassador talks about Iraq and Iran in Chicago. Chris Woods reports in with Reflections on the Boswell-Warner event. Also, Jimbob Kinnikin tell us about Meeting Ned Lamont in Boston. Finally, skippy tells us about meeting Markos and Jerome and crashing the book signing party for Crashing the Gate.
- For organizing and infrastructure information, check out Gatordemocrat's piece on the silent revolution, Precinct Organizing: The Path to the Promised Land. Also, Planting Liberally has two new installments in his / her diaries on infrastructure and organizing: How to Build a Local Progressive Think Tank and Who will guide the guides? A list of guides to organizing.
- Recent diaries have offered us good information on a wide range of congressional races. Sem1480 pens Why YOU need to care about PA-08 (Part 5 of 10). The Southern Dem writes Larry Kissell Will Take NC-8 from Republicans. Howard Park tells us that Massa Outraises Kuhl, Maffei Outraises Walsh in New York (NY-29 and NY-25, respectively). Words Have Power tells us of NRCC Swift Boating of Francine Busby in CA-50. Jedincny informs us that Nevada is looking ripe, with Jill Derby within the Margin of Error in Republican NV-02. Finally, David Kowlaski offers some information on GOP cash on hand.
- I'd also like to give a more generalized shout out to Skeptic '06, Jeff Huber, Bondad and Joseph Hughes, who have put up multiple good diaries lately.
