Bai-Ling is serving up hot kisses from the 'hot east'...

Lifestreamin' Steve Rubel has been seen riding around in an old beat-up van w/Guy Kawasaki...

Azerbaijan: Activist bloggers face additional charge as trial approaches. Doesn't 'Azerbaijan' sound like it should be in a "Harry Potter" movie?

http://twitter.com/KatyPerry - Singer/songwriter Katy Perry made a name for herself in 2007, but has making music since she was only 15. Her hit single "I Kissed A Girl" was pretty catchy. Did she or didn't she? Katy Perry also was in a bit of a tiff with British singer Lily Allen for remarks in which she called herself a "skinnier version" of her, saying she meant it as a joke. Allen retaliated and told a British radio station that she "happened to know for a fact that Perry was an American version" of her because their record company needed "to find something controversial and 'kooky'" like her. Whatever. Follow her on Twitter!

Serious: Little Green Footballs: "Scottish officials said they were releasing Lockerbie terrorist Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi for "compassionate reasons." Well, that ... and those Libyan oil contracts"

Joseph Farah: While the British government was freeing Al Megrahi, it was standing firm on its inexplicable, irrational and perverse decision to ban American radio talk-show star Michael Savage from entering its country.

Victor Davis Hanson:
"Strange things are happening to the Obama administration and quickly so. His polls are diving and may not stop at 50/50, the most precipitous drop in approval of a first-year President since Bill Clinton in 1993 (cf. Hillary care). First, here are some of the problems the President faces:"

Sports: The NY Giants may not be coming back to UAlbany...(this means we'll be able to hang out at the pond and run around the track again all summer long!)

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.
