Even More Google Frugal

NYTmag & Parade covers with $1.02 I found while out walking Sunday...

Drive by that Suze Orman article. Much more interesting is New York Times economic reporter Edmund L. Andrews horror story entitled "My Personal Credit Crisis." Multiply Mr. Andrews' situation by hundreds of thousands and gee whiz no wonder we're in a huge mess! Who's fooling who? Are we living in a glass economy? It sure seems that way, and look at those commuter pilots - taking out $100,000 flight school loans so they can work at $20K a year jobs? Hmmm... wonder how much Mohammed Atta shelled out for flight school (and who bankrolled it)-never mind. I think I already know.

Now read this...

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.
