NetActive 14 June 2011

With just 17 months to go before the US Presidential election, none of the emerging Republican candidates impress me more than Michele Bachmann. I kinda like "the businessman" Herman Cain. Everybody else favors Mitt Romney, but I can't imagine him defeating Barack Obama. And we still aren't exactly sure what Sarah Palin will do. Out with you, damned Newt! The great thing about a democracy is that you can have a pack of candidates like this to pick and choose from. We just have to wait and see where it all goes.

The GoodYear Blimp burns and crashes...

When a tour bus operator found he had more passengers than seats, he put six people in the luggage compartment with mattresses and pillows.

Puerto Rican ladyblogger YuYu was dissed in D.C. and fired back by dropping an internet bomb.

I ran across a really neat art blog today: In Stillness - Artworks by Rebecca Ladds... when I look at blogs like this one, I get inspired... my brain gets stimulated! Great art = great thinking!

Of interest to upstate NY readers ::: It was just a year ago that John Mulrooney joined Cumulus rocker WPDH (101.5 Poughkeepsie) as part of the "Coop & Mulrooney Show," but now the station says "the time is right to move on from having a four-person show," leaving Mark Cooper and sidekicks Kricket and Deuce in place - and Mulrooney as the odd man out. Mulrooney was probably better known to Albany listeners for his long stint as part of the "Wolf and Mulrooney" morning show on PYX-106. Also via fybush, of interest to NYC readers: He's best known for his big hit "Someday, Someway," but now Marshall Crenshaw is trying his hand at radio. Crenshaw will join the staff of WFUV (90.7) beginning next Saturday for a one-hour weekly show called "The Bottomless Pit," which will air at 10 PM, following Vin Scelsa's venerable "Idiot's Delight."

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.
