Lazy Sunday July 3

Here it is after12 noon already and I haven't cracked a newspaper open yet! We've been sitting around Saki's watching Wimbledon on TV. Saki also has an "Asian" package as part of her satellite subscription and we saw some coverage of Yingluck Shinawatra, who is set to be Thailand's first female prime minister.

Flipping through the channels, the Casey Anthony trial was also in session again this morning, but I must confess i haven't really been following it - most people here in New York and Quebec couln't care less about the Anthony case... but go to any state below new Jersey and it's everything people are talking about!

I was sketching the other day and during this morning's netsurf bumped into a "Sketchy Sunday" artist's meme so I thought I'd submit a sketch/collage combo. But under the meme rules, it does not qualify, so I'll just post it for your enjoyment (or critical acclaim). Hover and click on the image for a larger version. I don't have a title for it. Saki named the jpg "turtleclock". The inspiration was a dream.

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.
