Goodbye, Dalai!

The Dalai Lama's April 18 to 22 appearances (with events set for the University at Albany, The College of Saint Rose and the Times Union Center) were to have been the inaugural events of the World Ethical Foundations Consortium: the WEFC has released the following statement: "Understandably, His Holiness the Dalai Lama was concerned that his message would not get through in the current environment and has postponed his trip to Albany. We look forward to welcoming His Holiness in the future so that the Albany community can benefit from his wisdom and leadership." Those who ordered by phone can call 1-800-30-EVENT for their refund. Online credit card purchases will be automatically refunded.

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.
