  1. “Burial at sea” is actually pretty clever. We can circulate rumors about what was really done with the body, and no one can ever prove the rumors wrong.



    No body = no proof

    It’s all too convenient.

  2. U.S. INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS BELIEVE OSAMA BIN
    LADEN MADE A PROPAGANDA RECORDING SHORTLY BEFORE HIS DEATH AND
    EXPECT THAT TAPE TO SURFACE SOON.
    IT'S UNCLEAR WHETHER THE TAPE IS AUDIO OR VIDEO, BUT A U.S.
    OFFICIAL SAYS THAT INTELLIGENCE INDICATES IT'S ALREADY WORKING ITS
    WAY THROUGH AL-QAIDA'S MEDIA PIPELINE.

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.
