Monday Morning Message

Friends, here we are, smack dab in the middle of wintertime! The last day of January begins our new workweek, and we'll be into the short month of February by the time it's all done Friday at 5pm!

I have a busy week ahead: the radio station fund drive take splace all week. On Tuesday we have Governor Andrew Cuomo out with his budget proposal. Wednesday meteorologists peg as the day of the next Northeast snowstorm, and we're not certain of its track. Will New York City get dumped on again? Will the storm reach the Capital Region and Saratoga? Stay tuned!

I've been awfully busy over the last several days, a trend I expect to continue. You must excuse my lack of more frequent posting for the time being. And know that the release of the 12 Hottest Blogging Babes for the year 2011 is coming soon.

Looking over the weekend Times Union I find Albany news doesn't seem to change very much. The local landfill is still running out of space. The newspaper continues to chase down any dirt regarding NXIVM and its founder Keith Raniere.

A national story that caught my eye was one about a rich woman who went wacko and killed her teenagers! Kids can indeed be "mouthy" but in this case mom blew her top! The NY Daily Nx has details and pictures from Facebook.

Last week's most interesting picture was that Reuters photo of lightning striking Mt. Shimone as the Japanese volcano erupted.

Imagine seeing TWO suns in the sky!*** The TU on page A8 (Sunday) may have the answer to why the Mayan calendar ends at the year 2012: the imminent explosion of Betelgeuse!

I had some issues with Saki Tumi's laptop, and let me tell you, what a difference a good disk cleaning program can make!

Wishing you a good week - I'll post when I can, and of course you can always find me on twitter!
*** From WikiPedia ::: The creation of the Crab Nebula corresponds to the bright SN 1054 supernova that was recorded by Chinese astronomers and Arab astronomers in 1054 AD. The Crab Nebula itself was first observed in 1731 by John Bevis. The nebula was independently rediscovered in 1758 by Charles Messier as he was observing a bright comet. Messier catalogued it as the first entry in his catalogue of comet-like objects. The Earl of Rosse observed the nebula at Birr Castle in the 1840s, and referred to the object as the Crab Nebula because a drawing he made of it looked like a crab.

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.
