CNN Broadcasts Photo of 'Terrorist' in Custody...

Dutch Member of Parliament Geert Wilders hails Jasper Schuringa as a "National Hero" for his role in saving a Northwest Air Lines  / Delta flight he boarded in Amsterdam, from a Terrorist attempting to detonate a bomb. Schuringa said he worked with crew members to subdue the alleged culprit, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian who claims to be working for Al-Qaeda. Abdulmutallab apparently used a syringe to inject a chemical into powder located near his groin, a technique known as PETN, not seen in previous attempted attacks. [Video]

Do you think we're in for new round of terror attacks? Michelle Malkin muses that this incident is reminiscent of Shoe Bomber Richard Reid. So, first it was the shoe bomber - now it's the lap bomber. Does this mean we'll be taking off our shoes and our pants at airports from now on?

Let's see: we've got those two White House Party Crashers, and now a guy who is on the terror watch list flies into the States and tries to blow up a jet??? WTF!?!?

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.
