SEX WITH TEACHER ::: Remember Beth Geisel? She's met her match! 33-year old Tara Driscoll of 17 Anna Street, Bay Shore, not only bedded down her student... authorities suggest there may have been a little pornmaking happening at the Long Island motel where the two made love! Police say the teacher drove the male student to the Capri Lynbrook Motor Inn in Lynbrook on March 19 "and engaged in sexual relations with the victim." The city Department of Education said Driscoll, who lives in Bay Shore, has been a teacher for five years at Campus Magnet Educational Complex in Queens.

INDIA ::: Blogger Sonia Faleiro in Vishal Come Home writes that she had been travelling around India these past few weeks for a project investigating the impact of poverty on India's children.

LEAVIN' LIVEJOURNAL (Sung to the tune of "Leavin' Las Vegas") ::: The latest Distributed Denial-of-Service attack (the second this year) on the most popular Russian blogging network, LiveJournal, has prompted a mass exodus of bloggers to different platforms and is said to be significantly re-shaping the country's blogosphere.

Praying for Marizela: Month 5 - Five months ago today, Michelle Malkin's 18-year-old cousin Marizela Perez vanished from the University District in Seattle near the campus of the University of Washington.

Michelle writes on her blog : "The police have made no new progress in her missing persons case. Since I last updated you in July, we’ve had no new leads or breaks — and there still has been no sign or word from Marizela.

We thank everyone around the country who continues to keep their eyes and ears open — and everyone who continues to keep Marizela and her parents in their thoughts and prayers."

The sad thing is, that the longer someone like Marizela is missing, the less likely it is they will be found alive... BUT... the Elizabeth Smart case gives everyone with a missing loved one a glimmer of hope that someday, somehow, that soul will find his or her way back.

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.
