Free Fall

Tonight say a prayer for Carlos Gamboa, a popular blogger in the Spanish-speaking blogosphere who lost his 12 year old daughter in an terrible accident in Colombia on Wednesday. His wife and 5 year old child are now in the hospital. Bettina Perroni has posted Caida-Libre on her blog [es]. She says "Carlos is very popular in our community, many bloggers are very sad for this fatality." and dedicated the post to Carlos. Below is the English translation.

"In silence, in solitude... standing on the rocky cliffs where the sea crashes
In a free fall without any doubt to be with you dear friend".

I didn´t want to believe it,
I just close my eyes, my hand and I pray for your strength.
my deepest sympathy "

With all my respects dedicated to my friend Carlos Gamboa.
-Bettina Perroni

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.
