"Good things come to those who wait"

...this ancient truism certainly applies to New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. In his biding his time before throwing the proverbial "hat in the ring" (as well as protecting his ability to function as A-G) for the Governor's race, Mr. Cuomo demonstrates the power in the philosophy.
New York State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs convened an impromptu press conference immediately after Governor David Paterson's departure from the press room in his Midtown office, "Andrew Cuomo is going to be our nominee," Jacobs said, saying Cuomo would choose his own timing. [LINK]

Every weekday morning while I'm waiting for the bus, I send out a "tweet of inspiration" to my followers, a few words of enlightenment or encouragement. Strings of words designed to immediately set the wheels of memory, hope and mortality in motion. If you're not following me, why don't you? Savor these nuggets, if you can:

“What soberness conceals, Drunkenness reveals”

“Every path has its puddle”

“If you want to feel rich, just count the things you have that money can't buy”

“Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something”

  1. I love the quote about feeling rich. It is so true. When you can say you have things that money can't buy, you are truly rich, for you have something that no one can buy. It is priceless!

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.
