Watching the News

Thanks to Erasmo Cortez

Have you guys been watching the news lately? I recently got satellite so I’ve got all those 24 hour news channels and I have to admit, it’s pretty depressing sitting in front of the TV sometimes because it seems like nothing good is happening. From all the economic stuff and the real estate market news all the way to all the violence in the middle east sometimes I feel like I never hear anything good. One thing that did make me smile the other day though was a report about how in the aftermath of the Japan earthquake people over there have found and turned in over 72 million dollars worth of money in the rubble. I love that there are still some good people in the world! I know I’m probably being totally pessimistic but it’s tough sometimes feeling like there’s no good news on the airwaves and I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels this way. I don’t even allow my kids to watch the news because it’s too depressing!

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.
