Craving Salt

One of day's assignments took me to downtown Albany where free tickets were being given out for the world premiere of the new Angela Jolie movie "Salt"...



As I was driving down Clinton Avenue just a little before 10am I was thinking "hey, I'll get a few of the tickets since I'll be down there already." You know, figuring that because I was in the media I was a little ahead of the "general public" when it came to knowing about the giveaway. Well, the joke was on me! Everything was curiously quiet outside the Palace, and as I headed North on Pearl Street looking for a place to park, I noticed there weren't many people around at all... just a few construction workers.

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.
