Death Waits

Patience. Death has more than enough. Thursdays papers carried two articles: one about NYS Trooper David Lane. The 30-year old stationed at the Catskill barracks was driving northbound on 32 Wednesday afternoon when his cruiser bumped a vehicle he was trying to pass, sending the police car into a pole, and Lane into the netherworld. This youmg man had served his country in Iraq and Afghanistan, and made it home safely. You will not know the hour when death may decide to bump shoulders with YOU!

Driver inattention is suspected as the cause of anotehr crash where a 30-year old Saratoga county woman nearly lost her life. Dawn Ormsby may have been fiddling with the car radio when she went off the road and landed at the entrance ramp to the netherworld. Lots of injuries, but thankfully death left the scene of the accident. She'll heal. A prayer or two might help here.

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.
