Once Again, Ladies & Gentlemen, It's Porco Time!

Local author Steve Ference to appear on National TV!

It's a brutal murder case that people in upstate New York still talk about.

Now, Friday, at 10PM, TruTV (formerly CourtTV) is airing a half-hour television special on the Christopher Porco murder case.

He was convicted of murdering his father, a prominent law clerk, and trying to murder his mother with an ax. She survived the ordeal. Originally police said she believed he was responsible for the attack, but after she woke up from a coma and recovered from her wounds, she said she never indicated he might have attacked his own family - and she stood by him at trial.

"Forensic Files" covers the case in a half-hour time-slot Friday. Steve Ference, the Capital News 9 Reporter/Anchor and Author of the locally best-selling book on the case, November Memories: Inside the Christopher Porco Case, will be featured in the program after covering the case extensively. Local attorneys, including assistant District Attorney David Rossi, who successfully co-prosecuted the case, will also be part of the television show.

Currently, Christopher Porco is in jail serving 50 years to life. An appeal has been filed and the prosecution's response is expected in the next few weeks. Then the court will decide whether to grant the appeal - and a new trial - or not.

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.
