Coming Up

Tags: ,

Channel 6 has an interesting piece scheduled to air tonight. You might want to catch it. WRGB sent a reporter to spend a day with New York Lt. Gov. David Paterson. Now THAT must have been a great assignment! Paterson, who is legally blind, is also nationally recognized as a leading advocate for the visually and physically impaired. Paterson lives in Harlem with his wife, Michelle, and their two children, Ashley and Alex, and he is the son of Basil Paterson, the first non-white secretary of state of New York and the first African-American vice-chair of the national Democratic Party.

Speaking of politics, Upstate Blue blogs about a possible rematch in the 45th State Senate District.

I woke up this morning craving for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, something I rarely have for lunch, and never, in the last 10 years can recall having at breakfast. I didn't blog at all yesterday. I had all I could do to just get through the day. It was one of those Mondays when you just don't want to drag yourself out of bed. I hate those days and always force myself to get up, get going and run through the day. Luckily, I had to go to work, so once there it was easy to keep the momentum going. When I arrived back home after 5pm, that was it. Quick dinner. Crash on the couch. I awakened at 10 and moved snoozing activities over to the bed. Maybe all I needed was a deep, sound sleep. I had one of those "toss and turn" episodes both Saturday and Sunday nights.

  3. Sorry to delete these comments. the first was from a critic who obviously has some personal problems. Please understand, a blog is like a diary. that person was upset because I shared some personal information about how my day was going.

    The second comment posted was from an individual who was very irate and blasted the first with no shoratge of expletives. thanks for your support, guy, but chill out! It's only a blog!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
