Of Oaks And Acorns


Ripped from the Schenectady NY Daily Gazette:

DEC to map trees with deadly oak wilt

Departmental of Environmental Conservation staffers will be out in the Glen Oaks neighborhood as early as Monday to assess the threat of oak wilt disease.

ACORN efforts in Schenectady not hurt by scandal
Friday, Oct. 17, 2008

Perhaps it’s lucky that playgrounds and street lights have kept the local ACORN chapter so busy this year.
What's that old saying? The nut doesn't fall far from the tree? What does it mean? YOU figure it out!

COMMENTING FEES
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.
