In Manhattan, Blogging via Cellphone On An Overcast Saturday Morning...

Paralyzed by the Volcano:::Europe stays indoors for now. Hmmm... I'm listening to a newscast about all of the Europeans stranded at Kennedy Airport. Adding one thing to last night's post about the Volcano and the Economy: one would think that all that jet fuel not being consumed might reverse the upward spiral of petroleum prices? Don't count on it! The crafty modern-day oil barons will more likely just "freeze" prices (and make more money that way!)

The earth has been doing a lot of quaking and shifting, so I would guess it's only natural it would pass a little gas via volcano! Any additional disaster of any kind would most certainly chip away at economic recovery. I'll keep watching. So will you.
0815 Netbook Update: Travelers are stranded all across India, Asia and throughout Europe! (I was stranded someplace once, and didn't like it a single bit!)

via "Nadia's Live Mobile Experiment" ::: "We have a contemporary history of Egyptian immigrants being illegally smuggled out of Egypt to southern Italy by sea. If I could only find those smugglers and get me a trip on the return route back to Egypt. But where does one find a smuggler? Follow me in Twitter for the updates on how the drama of it all (yes, I’m being very dramatic about it) unfolds."
Have you ever noticed how many times it's the "firefighters" who set the fires?

Funny how government agencies always seem to be able to lose valuable data quickly...

Here's a look at a Doctor's ironic mistake.

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.
