How about "V SHARE" for the State Dept's blog name?

I'll go with Statecraft.

For me it best describes the ultimate goal of the Department of State's mission.

I also have to admit that I picture Secretary Clinton each time I hear either 21st Century Statecraft or QDDR for that matter:)

"State It"

Sometimes in naming you need to start all over. None of the lowest common denominator proposed names has any life or zing. It promises that the blog might be the same. Please find a name with zip such as the above suggestion or another submission. Good luck!

What is the State Department going to do about the situation with Jon Hammer being held in a Mexican jail for bringing a shotgun into their country. The shotgun was presented at the US border to US Customs Agents and he was told there was no problem with taking the weapon into Mexico. When he declared the weapon to the Mexican authorities he was arrested and is now being held in a Mexican jail. Why did this happen? Why isn't the State Department doing anything to resolve this situation? Why does he continue to fear for his life? What are you going to do about it?

@ Richard S. in Indiana

I saw that news report about the Marine that crossed the border into Mexico with a shotgun. He was driving an rv and carried a weapon into Mexico. It's against the law to carry a weapon across the border to any country without obtaining permission from their Government. The United States could put some pressure on the Mexican Goverment to process the case that meets with US/Mexico relations and see if they can get the Marine released back to the United States. I think anyone would fear being in a Mexican Prison eating beans daily. 1 billion commerce is traded daily on our Mexican US border so I think Richard your right, the United States State Department should help the Marine, considering the Marines help protect the United States Government.

I hope the State Dept is doing something behind the scene in regards to the marine imprisoned in Mexico. It is disgraceful to allow this to continue. The Mexican government should be pressured into this soldier's release. According to a news story, this country sends millions of dollars of aide to Mexico. Is this how we are repaid? If a favorable resolution is not forthcoming, I think the U.S.'s relationship with Mexico should be reconsidered.
