Paterson Transition

Have you been Googling the new Governor? They call it "The Paterson Transition." It is underway and this morning, the appointment / inaug less than 24 hours old, the newsmedia is reporting a "bump" in the Paterson marriage some years back. They say the Patersons just wanted to get the incident "out there" and that's a good thing: I'd been puzzled as to why, all weekend long, people arriving at my weblog had come through Google or Yahoo by searching "david paterson and xxxxxx xxxxx" - "x" being the name of a woman linked to NY politics. Queries originated from broadcast entities and newspapers. (Yes, I can see much more than your I.P. addresses!) Now, it all makes sense. Could this hurt Paterson? No. He's honest and "clearing" the record by releasing this latest bit of info. Could this hurt the woman? Maybe. Let's see what happens next!

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.
