Hooray for METROLAND!

Now this is really something! Albany's wonderful weekly newsmagazinetabloid has gone and recognized an authentic grassroots blogger!

Way to go, ACO! She's a cover girl now, with three inside pages telling her story! (This is far far better and sweeter than one line of recognition in Metroland's "Best of" list!) Albany Citizen One knocks a home run out of the park for real dedicated bloggers everywhere!
She lost her job. She got the idea to start blogging. But not just editorializing on the reporting of the legitimate press and linking to their articles like most bloggers content themselves with. She decided she wanted to use her blog as a means of full-fledged reporting.
And kudos to Chet Hardin for writing the story behind the blog and blogger! Good Job!

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.
