Welcome to My World, Saturday March 12, 2011

Not the greatest day for people in Japan. First an earthquake, then a tsunami, bazillions of yen in damage, and now a nuclear threat!

This should cool America's heels when it comes to nuclear power in a hurry. Hmmm... have you noticed that every time the public starts to open up to the idea of nuclear power, something really bad happens? Nobody wants to even think about evacuating from their home. And do what? Sit around in the shelter? Have the government tell you it's all over now, like the Russians did with Chernobyl?

During the week I heard a lot of trash talk on talk radio about the Catholic Church and Andrew Cuomo. Debate over whether Cuomo should take Communion because he is living with a woman who he is not married to. Not once did anyone make the obvious connection: The Church had better not criticize Cuomo - all the Governor has to do is ask "what about all of your pedophile priests and the hanky-panky with altar boys." In other words, clean up your own act before you go telling everyone how dirty someone else's is. (By the way, those pedi-priests are reprehensible. And if the Church got tough on companionship, they'd be closing many more houses of worship because nobody'd go.)

There's a blurb in the newspaper about the Brooklyn DA's investigation into the case of a 19-year old woman who killed a hamster. Really? Aren't there much more pressing cases involving human beings that nobody bats an eye about?

I'm on a bitter roll today!

Here's something: a study out Friday reveals Americans are avoiding short trips to Canada whenever possible. "They seem to think there's no reason to go." LOL!

Back to Japan: it seems the gods (and the oil companies) are intent on making that double-dip recesssion prophecy of mine come true. The big fallout from high gasoline prices will likely come in May, IMHO.

On the bright side: nice to see Congresswoman Gabby Giffords making a good recovery. God Bless Her!

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.
