Google "Frugal"

The Sunday Times Union devotes much space to the economy and to folks trying to cut corners as they scrape to get by. Don't believe anyone who says "it's getting better." It's NOT. Hunker for the long haul and save what cash you can. It DOES grow! A splendid thing happened to me this morning at the laundromat. As I was about to load some stuff I noticed a wet $20 clinging to the washer's side. That 20 is dry now :) and will accompany me to the supermarket in a couple of hours. As for the collective economy, I still recommend NOT buying a car. Gas prices are creeping up, and, as one car dealer told me while I was gathering info for a report on the Chrysler closings, people KNOW that hybrids and electrics are about 16 months away from being marketed. Hang on to the old trusty clunkers for now!

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.
