Chairs and Agendas...

My my my those chairs at the Albany Public Library are sooooo comfy. And yet they're HARD PLASTIC. How can THAT be possible? I could sit at the library computers for hours and feel great. These chairs are like Skechers sneakers for the entire body. I love 'em so much I wanna buy one for my home office... but they apparently cost a bit of money...

Now, onto the two agendas (agendi?):::

Talk about head-scratcher: the weekend Albany Times Union ran a 3-pager that started as the front page headline "Reformer or corrupt mayor? - all about the late Thomas Whalen - he's been gone about 10 years - hasn't been mayor for a lot longer than thatt, and yet the newspaper elects to write a story (by one of its top reporters) about a failed FBI probe?

Makes no sense... UNLESS... the paper is setting up the framework for a more current tale involving Albany County micropolitics... that's my "gut guess"

Ok, one agenda down...

Next, via Michelle Malkin, a really "out there" tale - if this wasn't Michelle, I'd write it off as a parody / fantasy. It is REAL as REAL can be! Hover and click on the image below!
This is just so freakey! MM writes "When last we heard from former Democratic congresswoman and jihad-coddling tool of anti-American transnationalism Cynthia McKinney, she was sailing to Gaza to deliver medical supplies to Hamas. The Israeli Navy turned back her S.S. Moonbat.

Alas, her Islamofascist-boosting journeys are far from over."

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.
