Caroline Kennedy Paterson's Choice: Officials

Sources Say Paterson Will Name Kennedy

There have been many unkind words against Kennedy spoken and printed. The entire drama reminds me of an event many years ago where an individual was denied an appointed position simply because he had "no experience" and couldn't articulate his credentials smartly enough for critics. He went on to be elected to that same position a few years later and ended up being "the best" to ever be in that position. Those old enough may recall how others snickered when Ronald Reagan, Sonny Bono, Jessie "the body" Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger aspired to public office.

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.
