<=Vadim & Yarah in HK... 

Diet Coke posed a perfectly logical question on its facebook page - If you were going to make a new flavor Diet Coke, what flavor would it be? Falze at Albany Media Bias looked through about 250 comments. And came to a conclusion...

Although SUMMERTIME has departed for the time being, bloggers at All Over Albany have come up with some stuff to do this weekend!

Ya gotta love the OnStar system!

I'm leaving town for the weekend, blogging and tweeting from other places. Before I do, I'm checking in with Albany Citizen One, who is keeping watch on a local effort to muddle together religion and politics.

M.I.A. rips Lady Gaga a new one!

Here's a cute Post-it® Advertorial from Xiaxue!

The Black Eyed Peas will do anything for money!

Great advice for BFF and Clique Bloggers (H/T Cornyman)

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.
