Freihofer's Donuts

Albany, Schenectady, troy, and probably every other major North American city once had places where people could buy wonderful, marvelous, tasty donuts!

The great donut shops of old (I used to LOVE Brooks' on Northern Boulevard) are no more. Dunkin' Donuts lost the wonderful flavor they once had (those transfats were good for something!) and unless you're near a Krispy Kreme, you're SOL.

Even grocery store donuts taste like rubber these days. But wait a minute... what was that strange box I chanced upon at the Price Chopper? OMG! I can hardly believe it... it's... REAL old-fashioned Freihofer donuts! Definitely NOT the rubbery "softee" variety.

I sped thru the checkout, hopped into the car and tore off into the sunrise... brewing coffee at home, and then, the moment... YES! YES! YES! They tasted like old-school Freihofer Donuts! They ARE old-school Freihofer Donuts! But grab 'em as soon as you see 'em... the clerk tells me they disappear from the shelves rather quickly! I rate 'em #1!

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.
