One of the cool things about Dailykos

Is the diary community. It's an open format, like blogger, but since Dailykos gets 500,000 or so hits a day, just posting your diary can get a story like this lots of access. It's a detailed report on how San Francisco is about to extend health care near-universally, and some of the challenges facing the city.

And it's a marvel of the kind dogged research done by individual citizens who have (generally) no real connections to power. It's just them doing their thing. It's very punk rock in a sense, because the 'right credentials' aren't required to produce somthing meaningful.

I want me some of the Dailykos glory, so I set up a diary there.
