UAlbany Remembers "Bailey"

Wednesday, October 21, 2009, The University at Albany will remember the life of student Richard Bailey with a ceremony on the first anniversary of his tragic death. During the ceremony, which will take place outside the University Police Department building at the 1400 Washington Ave. uptown campus, the University will also announce the 2009-2010 recipient of the Richard Bailey Memorial Fund. The remembrance ceremony will follow the noon tolling of the University’s Carillon bells.

Richard Bailey was gunned down as he walked home from a friend's house one evening on South Lake Avenue. Bailey was shot once, in the back of the head. Three black males were arrested for the murder. Bailey (as he liked to be called) was set to graduate from UAlbany with a degree in Sociology and a minor in Criminal Justice. He had wanted to become a New York City police officer like his father. The day before he was killed, he had taken the New York City police exam.

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.
