Albany's New Police Chief ::: Steven Krokoff

The City of Albany now has a police chief! Acting Chief Steven Krokoff has been promoted and officially sworn-in. That happened today at City Hall. I covered the event for WAMC. I shot video and took a few pictures with my little Fly Ying hiPhone. Below the video there's a picture I took with the phone of Albany County Legislator Brian Scavo. It has a strange sheen to it, almost like an oil painting!



I know I know! I absolutely need to get a better videophone!

I think I may have inadvertently changed a setting on the camera. The hiPhone camera has numerous settings, many more than my Virgin Mobile Kyocera does... If I get time over the weekend I may play around with the hiPhone a little more, see if I can take some pictures and enhance them with my computer's photoshop-like software. Who knows? Perhaps I'll become a photo-artist, Like Leonard Nimoy...

COMMENTING CHARGES
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.
