FBImagine


When attending a press event last week I overheard a reporter talking on her cell phone, telling a colleague (assumption there) "...make sure you delete the files..." and later the same day I passed by a paralegal saying something to the effect of "...make sure you shred the documents..."

I'm amazed by the FBI's ability to produce, day after day, damning evidence at the Joe Bruno trial, in the form of emails, memos and documents. They must have one hell of a team of "diggers"!

Now imagine if the FBI team could ride a time tunnel back to the days of Mayor Erastus Corning... with all of the political shenanigans that supposedly were going on at the time, 3/4ths of Albany would be indicted and half the city would probably be in the penitentiary!

Whatever! When the JB Trial is over (and probably even now, as I write this) lawmakers and politicians and businesspeople running will be scrambling to shred, delete andotherwise dispose of any paper or electronic trails they may have left behind...

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.
