Ah, the Internet! Where one can travel 'round the world, right from the comfort of home!

Not too far from home, President Obama is in New York City today. He might weigh in "a little further than (Robert) Gibbs did on the New York mayor's race," says a senior White House official.

Obama is raising money for the DNC (up to $3 million) and NY-23 Democratic nominee Bill Owens, whose race has become a litmus test for the president and the GOP. H/T Liz Benjamin

Former President Bill Clinton has a protected twitter account, blocking access unless you're one of the six people he's deemed Bubba worthy. Does a twitter glitch allow anyone to glimpse at what Bill's tweeting?

Crime:::Annie Le's accused murderer Raymond Clark is due in court today.

Cute Overload:::Cats And Dog Reign At The Javits Center!

In Sports, Jimmy Rollins lined a two-run double with two outs in the ninth inning off closer Jonathan Broxton and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 Monday night for a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series.

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.
