The American parents who are reading the Tiger Mother’s tale aren’t looking to copy (Amy) Chua’s cruel coldness; they’re smart enough to edit that out when they try this at home. It’s her daughters’ success they’re after." ::::: "It is not only true that many non-Chinese are befuddled by and cannot understand the true secrets to Chinese success here and abroad, not a few people of my generation and even those younger of our ethnic Chinese minority — who despite going to the best schools here or in the West — also tragically no longer remember how our penniless immigrant ancestors painstakingly earned success through decades of blood, sweat and tears, though years of guts, grit and jia kho."~ Wilson Lee Flores

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.
