On Our Street

Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes

My neighbor’s house was broken into last week, and my husband and I are very worried. We didn’t think that this kind of thing could happen on our quiet street. We’ve lived here for years and have never had any problems. We all know each other, and I like to think we keep an eye out on our neighbor’s places when we can. We don’t know why our neighbors were targeted, but it is scary knowing that something like that happened right under our noses. No one saw a thing, and all of their valuables are gone. For the amount of goods these robbers stole, they must have used a large vehicle of some sort. As soon as we heard about it we searched ADT Security Ottawa and set up a home security system so at lease we would feel safer. Our kids are older, so they stay at home alone after school. We are terrified that if someone notices that, we might be next on the list of houses to hit. Our possessions aren’t that important to us, but the safety of our children is.

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.
