Just Another Day in NY Politics

"I haven't seen someone look so uncomfortable on camera since Daniel Pearl." - a comment appearing with NYmag article post "Hiram Monserrate’s Girlfriend [VIDEO] Is So Not Terrified of Hiram Monserrate.

Dancing on Monserrate's Grave » The Wonkster

Will Monserrate have to find a new religion?

Governor David Paterson drags Kirsten Gillibrand under his bus » Liz Benjamin ... The Gov's new press secretary is... Morgan Hook! (The old one resigned!)

Can Andrew Cuomo stay "on top"?

From a press release: Feminist Gubernatorial Candidate Kristin Davis, formerly known as the Manhattan Madam who supplied escorts for Eliot Spitzer while he was both Attorney General and Governor today called on ABC Radio (77WABC) to end negotiations with Spitzer to become a fill-in host on the ABC Radio Network. Can't we all just move on????

And zeroing in on the Capital Region: Aaron Dare reveals a crime spree involving his partner, a decorated deceased Albany detective.

Uh-oh... is this a jinx in the making? "Obama picks Siena - Team has presidential backing at NCAAs"

BONUS!!!
The Capital Region: Be here or be square!

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.
