This is a follow-up / re-write / update of a previous post!

Gaia Sweeney: The Times Union reports that "Late Friday afternoon she said she only learned of the news 'an hour ago' by reading a Times Union blog entry."

OMG! A blog entry! I for one would hate to hear of any news concerning myself or a family member via a blog entry! Somebody please call me first and ask me if it's so... This is by far the worst case scenario of "I read the news today, oh boy..."

[Original post follows]

I hate stories like this one: Sweeneys May Split, Paper Says...

Looks like former Congressman John Sweeney and his wife are [finally] calling it quits: "Papers filed with the Saratoga County Clerk’s office list John Sweeney as the plaintiff and Gaia Sweeney as the defendant..." Poor Mr. Sweeney got caught up and swept away by life itself. Somebody else might've done all the same things and lost nothing. Life is all about mistakes and responsibilities. Or as Kenny Rogers once sang, "ya gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em."

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.
